Five hundred thousand dollars to be spent on a recount? The state could much better use that money for the opioid problem. There is an overdose death every day in this state – and we have a few people who think that marijuana is a bad drug?

If the people of Maine let $500,000 get spent on a recount of the marijuana legalization vote, shame on us! There are people out there who need help, and that money could help save some lives.

Spending $500,000 to address 4,000-vote margins is stupid!
