I am 73 years old. I've never smoked pot and never truly approved of
it. But I know this. People who use marijuana will go back to paying
for it from people who obtained or grew the product illegally. This
is Prohibition all over again - in its worst form.

Where is the good in this close down and shut down and re-regulation?
If it provided decently for those who use it for medical purposes, it
might make a teeny bit of sense. It doesn't. Worse, or equally
stupid, is the fact it will not make a dent in recreational use. As
with Prohibition, people who never drank before made bathtub gin to
show that the government could not tell them what to do. So, bring it
on Mexican Cartels. We are now throwing our arms open to your
product. You will make it easy and you will be grinning from ear to
ear, all the way to the bank.

By the way, how many of you in Shasta County and surrounding areas
now have plans for your homes or property where you will grow and
perhaps make a little money on the side? People who never would have
entertained the thought before now? How many? Thank you, City
Council, for this absolute idiocy. All you have done is waste our
time and money, put people out of work and generally made a mockery
of what the people expect of you.

Ann Chapman, Redding
