Kevin Meara, co-founder of City Of Angels, an organization which guides people with addiction and supports them in their recovery, came on my show recently and took calls from those dealing with addiction in New Jersey.

Afterward, I asked him how he feels about the possible legalization of marijuana in the Garden state.

"There are a lot of people who believe that marijuana helps them," Meara said. "But at the same time, marijuana is addictive. There are probably half as many people that get addicted to marijuana that get addicted to cocaine. If they do legalize it, they will have to provide the cleanup because some people will be affected negatively."
