Supporting the strong chief law is very important issue. Town meeting needs to keep the law as it is and this issue should not be brought up again!

I drive a pupil bus for $10 per hour. I had to get a drug test to be eligible for this job. You mean to tell me these guyz making BIG BUCKS don't have to be in compliance. It's obvious their behavior requires "reigning in and to follow the law by having drug tests".....the mentality of these guyz make me wonder what they are smoking??
