Rep. O’Neill Discusses Recreational Marijuana on The Real Story on Fox61 

Posted on March 29, 2019 by admin


This Sunday, March 31, State Representative Arthur O’Neill (R-69) will be a featured guest on Fox61’s morning program, The Real Story, to talk about efforts to legalize recreational marijuana in Connecticut.

Rep. O’Neill, who discussed the negative effects and societal impact regarding marijuana legalization, was joined on the program by Rep. D’Agostino who argued in favor of loosening state drug laws.

“The legalization of recreational marijuana is not as simple an issue as many people want to believe, and the potential negative impacts on our society including an increase in juvenile use, addiction and impaired drivers and workers are substantial,” Rep. O’Neill said. “Our state should not rush into something that has the potential to harm so many people without fully considering all of the social and legal concerns. I’m skeptical of the reasons for doing this at this time.”
