Letter: No Pot Shops in Holliston

With the passage of question 3 in the November election, Holliston resident Marty Lamb is concerned about easy access to marijuana.

Dear Editor,

I am writing to express my concern about the recently passed ballot question on marijuana.  While I understand the need for people with medical ailments to use the substance, I am concerned about a pot shop opening in our community. 

In California, where a similar law passed, there are major problems within the communities that host the pot shops that sell the substance.  That’s why the district attorneys opposed the ballot question last year. 

I think Holliston should consider banning these pot shops from our community.  We don’t want our children having easy access to the drug.

OMG.......Here we go "Rapid Republican Blog" let the man say what he wants whether you like it or not. I guess that no freedom of speech is part of the "liberal Agenda"

You must not have kids at the High School. There are so many drugs in Holliston it isn't funny. Sorry Michelle, you don't live in Mayberry any longer. Drugs are a huge issue in our town, and everyone knows about it, but doesn't say anything about it. The kids are going to get what they want, they do now. Up to parents to keep their kids drug-free and hope they make good choices.

You got that right and it makes me so angry that the parents in this town just turn their heads and look away!

Marty must live under a rock, if he thinks a Pot Shop is going to cause our kids to smoke the stuff. If the kids want drugs they go to the High School. I wish people in this town would open up their eyes and lower their noses....the drugs are already here people! Talk to you kids, over and over and over again!
