It’s time to get with it on marijuana, Alpena

I am writing in support of the City of Alpena permitting local sales of medical and recreational marijuna. I will soon be receiving my card from the state. Why should I or others have to travel three or more hours to make that purchase? I don’t travel for other medications.

Alpena’s elderly population has grown since we moved her in 2003, and the tax that the city is expecting to raise will be hard on everyone, but especially its senior citizens.

Selling medical and recreational marijuna would financially benefit the city, making increased taxes quite unnecessary, and would be far less dangerous, to my understanding, than alcohol or cigarettes.

Consult the community of professionals and get with it!
