Dick Panzica: Wake up and smell the skunky smell

How should you vote for measure “W?” Well, how much do you love Nevada County? Would you like to see our county become a magnet for dope dealers and addicts?

Any drug counselor will tell you that marijuana is a gateway drug. What about our kids? What about driving under the influence of marijuana? How much money and time is already wasted on dealing with marijuana? How often is The Union carrying an article about illegal drug use or production? Every day? Why is our sheriff so opposed to outdoor grows? Because he’s seen the damage it does to people and property.

And why are the “No” people tearing down all the “Yes” signs all around the county? Isn’t that a criminal act? People, that’s just a taste of what will happen if the “no” people defeat prop “W.” Wake up and smell the skunk next door!
