Grow pot plants elsewhere

To push through a project on the pretence of ‘medical’ application when the objective is really commercial profit is being a bad neighbour.

To the Editor,

Re: Proposed pot facility opposed by residents, Sept. 4.

When I first heard that an application had been made to put a medical marijuana grow-op in our community, I drove down to see the parcel of land. A more beautiful and idyllically country setting would be hard to find anywhere.

River’s Edge residents are greatly concerned on how this proposal would impact their community. Close proximity to an aquifer and the Englishman River, marijuana odours, increased traffic and security concerns are only a few of the possible problems.

To push through a project on the pretence of ‘medical’ application when the long-term objective is really commercial profit is more than being a bad neighbour. It is the epitome of selfishness and greed. The rosy picture that Wildflower tries to paint is sheer fantasy and must not be allowed to proceed.
