My local newspaper just had an article about how the county commissioners are weighing in on making our county one of the locations for several
medicinal farms. 3 out of 5 say no with one of the 3 on the fence and needing more information.
On the one hand I am happy to see that at least one of the naysayers is at least on the fence and considering change. The other two used arguments
like "I've heard stories that Marijuana leads to everything else" I mean REALLY!!! That is your argument to deny the county much needed revenue and
jobs is the old and played out DARE mentality that MJ is the "gateway" drug.
The other opponent said something along the lines of "Back when I was a police officer we used to raid these kinds of places, I just see this as a
burden on the police force" Again, REALLLY!! WTF, how can something be a burden to the police force when it is legal within the state? Do they plan
on raiding perfectly legal grow ops? The article has already said that the farms will be under armed guard and you can bet that won't be police but
private security which brings jobs to the table with it.
What do all of these guys have in common, well lets see...They are all OLD, AFFLUENT white men who have been in positions of public "disservice" for
many years. Yep they sound totally trustworthy and legit
