The Republican party of the past

Apparently the Nevada County Republican Party has passed a “resolution” against the marijuana ordinance Measure S.

Deborah Wilder, speaking for the NCRP, states that: “These plants put out extremely strong odors, the growers typically use extra strong fertilizers and frequently place poisons on or near the plants, killing wildlife and contaminating soil and ground water.”

Are these people just trying to look stupid or does it come naturally? I strongly suggest that they do some reading and some research on the subject. Their thinking and reasoning is so unbelievably backwards that one doesn’t know where to start with them. How incredibly unfair and irresponsible of them to print such nonsense.
