I am writing to oppose the warrant amendment aimed to stop the siting of a legal medical marijuana dispensary at the proposed Washington Street location — and from the start, let’s also stop using the demeaning and adolescent term “pot shop” when we are discussing a sanctioned, approved business that is regulated to serve citizens in need.
Two years ago, 75 percent of voters in town approved the use of medical marijuana to help relieve the physical suffering of some of our family members, friends and neighbors. The medical conditions of those with documented need had not changed since we voted two years ago.
I have read the concerns of those opposed to the dispensary location — and I find each argument to be either unsubstantiated by the facts, or highly inflated exaggerations of the risks. The law is a good, compassionate law, and the location will truly and safely serve the needs of our citizens. — Jeffrey Benson, Stearns Road
