Fear! A word used in one of last week's letters, warning us not to fear voting for the marijuana business to be allowed in Delta. First, I applaud Delta for holding out so long. I have yet to hear of a metropolis telling how happy they are that they allowed marijuana into their society. The financial benefits will not outweigh the negatives.
Second, the only fear I have is an awe inspiring fear of God. I'll vote for no marijuana business to be incorporated in Delta for the reasons Scott Schaible mentioned. To use money for improvement of any kind derived from marijuana is wrong. Blood money as he put it. We just had a bunch of drug dealers routed out of my neighborhood and it feels too good to be rid of them. There was action any time of day, cars and trucks roaring away and many girls coming and going. For this I commend our police force. They were diligent to say the least in helping to make us safer in our own neighborhood
Asinine was a word used last week and I agree. It is asinine to allow a substance that has been proven harmful to our youth to be allowed to come into Delta legally. It will not bring greatness as some feel. We have a golden opportunity here. We can take a stand or we can join the rest of society and be like sheep in a field, waiting for their shepherd to guide them. My shepherd is Jesus so let Him guide us.
Two of the four marijuana questions on the November ballot were narrowly approved by voters in the City of Delta. Measure 2F allows the establishment of medical marijuana centers. Measure 2H permits the establishment of medical marijuana cultivation, testing, research and manufacturing facilities.
