" EVERYDAY PEOPLE" sly & the family stone
Sometimes I'm right and sometimes I'm wrong
My own beliefs are in my song
I might like to explain myself here. As some of you may have guessed I'm a pretty liberal person. Live and let live. I care not what or where you worship, whom you choose as a partner you want to marry someone of the same sex that's your business. I am not opposed to medical marijuana or even if someone partakes in recreational marijuana use. I do believe it is a gateway to other drugs.
Now my belief is that over eight out of ten people can deal with marijuana without any kind of social problem. It's those other two I worry about. I have seen first-hand the disastrous results.
Someone mentioned it's only a matter of time before it's legalized, so legalize it. Don't blow smoke up my a## telling me this is all about medical use, be honest. How many 40,000 sq.ft. facilities do you need for medical marijuana? Opportunities' exactly for who? Growth Orchard please Explain.
We elect people to look over our dominion and to respect what resident's in our city expect in their decision's. Following federal law is one of those things?
If it our new city manager or her economic team behind promoting this hair brain idea
maybe it's time to go in a different direction.
Call it what you will, I believe it is a mistake to sell city property to an endeavor that is and will be in violation of federal law. End of subject.
The why and the who would be interesting to know!
So For or Against here's your opportunity to be heard.
DESPERATION TIME? OR JAM IT DOWN OUR THROAT TIME?
