New pot laws problematic

In a nutshell, if I use the 75-square-foot rule when I grow, then subtract the 75 percent of weed that I lost to mold last year, I will definitely be back to buying weed and supporting drug sellers. Therefore, it seems Cliff Newell is aiding the drug sellers that I haven’t had to use for years now. I find that reprehensible, and I don’t agree with his decisions at all.

I don’t like helicopters flying lower than the law allows, scaring people and livestock. Prying into personal privacy is not what I expect from a public servant. If I am lying around in my garden naked, catching some sunshine, and that thunderous whirlybird starts hovering, I think of throwing a chain.

Would a recall of Mr. Newell be a possibility? Perhaps we can elect less of a power tripper who obviously doesn’t respect the will of the people. And as always, remember, that it is the people’s responsibility to regulate bad government.
