Guam - Retired Supreme Court of Guam Chief Justice Peter Siguenza was a guest speaker at today's Rotary Club of Tumon Bay meeting. Siguenza is a proponent for the legalization of medicinal marijuana in Guam.

He was asked by a participant about "what about the folks that are serving time for a joint in Texas for life what happens if this becomes legal? Nightmare?" He responded by saying, "I don't see that as a nightmare. I see releasing violent criminals as a nightmare. But oddly enough violence is not associated with marijuana. Violence is associated with what, people? Alcohol. You've never had a response to domestic disturbance where the police report said the combatant was under the influence of marijuana when he beat up his wife. It doesn't happen that way."
