LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Marijuana stinks

There has been a lot of debate about the marijuana issue lately. One thing has not been discussed is the effect it has on neighborhoods. Landlords loose thousands and there are fire hazards that could cause another Angora Fire, yes. But if none of these things happen, there’s the smell! I’ve lived in my house for over 20 years now a kid moved into his mother’s house from the bay area and started growing pot in it. I don’t know if it’s legal or not, all I know is our area has smelled like a skunk moved in. My son came by and asked me if there’s a skunk in the area, I told him the guy next door was growing dope. The city council has said they don’t want anyone growing in commercial buildings but I would like to differ – that’s the only place it should be allowed! I also have to shake my head when the word medical is used. When I see a local doctor running an add in the Tribune to get prescriptions, come on this is just a easy way for potheads to get their dope. I hope the pot issue on the ballot in the next elections passes then they can just go to the store and buy it and all this will go away.
