Re "Medi-pot measure moves on" (Downstroke, July 14):

Fool us once, fool us twice, but please don't be fooled again. We 
need to pay attention to the details. The rights of patients to have 
access to medical marijuana are protected. Measure L is not about 
patients getting medical marijuana. Measure L pretends to be about 
the need for regulation and taxation of the pot trade, but it is 
really about the vast explosion of the use of Butte County as a 
center for huge indoor and outdoor grows, dispensaries every 1,000 
feet, honey oil labs and the destruction of our environment, water, 
wildlife and pets-a virtual domination of our economy and landscape.

Not to mention the social damage to our youth and family environment. 
Don't be fooled. The peace, safety and protection of our families, 
children, wildlife and environment are at stake here. Vote no on L or 
we'll soon be wondering how we could have let it happen to us.
