Editor: The controversy over the hemp store amazes me, and shows how
conservative opinion can run wild. Down the street in both directions, they
sell beer, wine and spirits, which cause by far more damage to everyone.
Drinking and driving and spousal abuse are just two problems that alcohol

Yet we have a mayor who has a conservative view prevailing over a man
who just wants to do business. Although I don't smoke the stuff
myself, I like to think that I am intelligent enough to know that
anyone who does is harmless.

What confuses the mayor is the fact that growing marijuana brings on
violence amongst gangsters trying to make a fast buck. Mr. Fassbender
needs to think the issue through.
