Medi-pot shop would bring jobs

The notion that having a local dispensary for marijuana would be counterproductive to “keeping marijuana out of teen’s hands” is utterly ridiculous. The only way a teen, or anyone else, could acquire marijuana from a dispensary is to present a recommendation from a medical doctor and valid identification. Just like how pharmacies work.

Opening a dispensary here locally would create jobs, create income for the city and provide a legal means for recommendation holders to acquire medicine without driving to another town.
