I live in a particularly small neighborhood in the midwest.
- I don’t want to say the name of it, just in case this goes viral! No reason to have all our friends & neighbors miserable with me, right? This has constantly been a fairly nice locale to live, except for that socially & politically it’s a little backwards.
The rest of the world seems to be moving forward & evolving, but around here every one of us are still stuck in the 1950s, but last year there was a statewide vote on the ballot for the legalization of medical marijuana, which passed by a wide margin, however months after that, our neighborhood still steadfastly refused to allow any cannabis dispensaries to open inside the neighborhood limits, but granted this is only a minor concern for me, because I can drive 15 or 20 minutes to the next town, which has various cannabis dispensaries. I am frustrated about the principle of the matter, because marijuana is legal & the neighborhood council has no right to deny access to the citizens. I know various people who need marijuana for strictly medicinal purposes. They are not toking OG Kush out of bongs, they are taking edibles to help with chronic pains, & that is a pressing deal! Denying people medicine is 100% immoral & for that reason I keep pressing officials to allow a cannabis dispensary to open in town. It’s simple for myself and others to drive to a farther away cannabis dispensary, but what about the sick & elderly, don’t they deserve better access? These are pressing concerns for all of us.
