Letter to the Editor: Recreational Marijuana and Security Clearances

Recently, executives at Electric Boat complained that if Rhode Island legalizes recreational marijuana, it will make it hard to find workers who can get security clearances. Electric Boat makes things designed to kill people, which is why its workers need security clearances. I think it is better for people to smoke marijuana than build new and better ways to kill. If Electric Boat stopped building things to kill people, it could find plenty of workers in the modern world.
