Hillsborough becomes latest to ease marijuana laws

Some parents, however, have concerns. Teresa Miller believes marijuana triggered her son's dangerous drug habit.
 
"Twelve years ago, my son was smoking marijuana," she said. "Within a year, he springboarded to severe opioid addiction."
 
Miller is worried someone can now be caught with 20 grams of pot and face minimal punishment.
 
"Twenty grams is conservatively 60 joints. That's a lot. You're not going to be carrying that around for personal use. So I'm a little concerned that it was that high of grams. I think it should be less," she said. "I'm really hoping and praying that people don't decide, 'Well, since it's semi-legal and I'm not going to go to jail, that I can use it.'"
