I live over the border so my vote should not really count. I will speak as the owner or former owner of property in three states, including Massachusetts:

a. No income tax means high property tax. NH supposedly pays the second highest property tax in the nation and while we supposedly pay the lowest overall total tax in the nation we also get very skinny state services and pay state employees very poorly.

b. Marijuana is a drug and recreational use should never be encouraged.

c. I am a dog lover and I don't gamble. I have seen cruelty to dogs at a dog track and know that many retired greyhounds are adopted but many others are quickly killed off if they fail to yield winnings to owners.

Yeah, we're persona non grata in this thread Inspector, but it's not like we're without our own problems up here in the Granite State.

1) Yes.

2) Yes. Puts officer's safety in jeopardy with arresting etc., waste of time, waste of
money.

3) Yes. No need to strain/injure animals for peoples amusement. Go to a casino if
you want to gamble.

Just a heads up but you will more than likely not fit in too well around here.

I can't believe all the FOOLISH replies......................

1) Either way, we will pay the piper. Taxes will be taken elsewhere instead of your paycheck.
2) Officer safety from ARRESTS ?????? If you are locking someone up for simple possession of Class D, you are working in some hick town and making CHUMP arrests. I bet ALL of these YES on 2 replies are from NON SWORN NON FT LEOs !!!!!!!
3) These animals are a PRODUCT and BUSINESS. They are not being snatched from little childrens livingrooms for sport. They are bred for a single use. Go hug a tree elsewhere.

NO NO and NO.

Thanks for adding the polls...I was a bit challenged during the creation of said poll...

1. No, they'll find a way to take taxes from somewhere else (like NH and FL).

2. No, slippery slope; some states anything less than 200 lbs is a misdemeanor.

3. No, if you want to spend your hard-earned money on doggies chasing a fake rabbit and get some sort of enjoyment out of that...wage on, my friends.
