I keep reading the letters concerning the growing restrictions that 
are being considered for marijuana and how bad that would be for the 
patients who need it. Well, it didn't seem to be a problem until 
"recreational" marijuana became legal. Those who have started their 
grow sites since the legalization are not selling or providing for 
only patients, but selling wherever they can profit.

We moved from "the city" out to the county to a peaceful little piece 
of land in 2014. We loved sitting on the back deck, drinking our 
coffee and reading the newspaper in the morning and then enjoying a 
barbecue dinner out there in the evenings. Just enjoying our little 
piece of heaven.

Then "pot" became legal in July 2015 and the horrible stench came 
with it. During "grow season" we cannot enjoy the outdoors, cannot 
open our windows in the evenings. It has us confined inside our home, 
locked in like prisoners during the nicest time of year.

No, I don't want pot in my backyard, I want to be able to retire and 
enjoy my yard once again. Restrictions are needed. Manufacture sites 
need to be in commercial areas, not residential.
