Letter: Marijuana Dispensary


Editor, The Friday Flyer

It is difficult to imagine “paradise” as a haven for drugs; the two words are diametrically opposed.

On our street, we watch a “wiggie” as he does his thing. Forgive me, but our daughter had to explain the bizarre behavior of this man because her parents were not acquainted with marijuana related actions. Neighbors took pictures as he went “fishing” at 3 a.m. to the little park on Whirlaway Ct. to conduct his drug deals.

To get a medical prescription for marijuana, all you have to have is a prescription or go to a nearby red cross sign located on Hwy. 74. How many young teens, mothers and children use the Canyon Lake gym area where this “business” would be?

Do we really want our babies, children, teens, citizens to live in a city where there is such easy access to this illegal, life-changing drug? We can never be called “paradise” again.

Just say no to the forces who are pushing this. Besides the obvious, “money,” what cowards would want to change our little city? We ask the city council to be brave and courageous as they make this most important decision of their lives, their careers.
