I have no idea who the Growing company is and clearly everyone knows how I feel about growing medical CANNABIS but...
I agree with Bobby.
The second I read it - 'I Got it' - smart actually, an empty arena! A great place to grow Cannabis, big, open, cool, truck backs up to doors. Sounds like a perfect location from all I have seen on the huge scale grows - In many magazines & ONLINE - research it.
There are many empty factories, warehouses possibly even arenas already shut down.
The kids in small towns hardly have enough to occupy them as it is! We need to keep them busy with physical activity, as obesity is the number one killer in the USA and sadly we seem to be falling behind, too close for comfort in my opinion.
Shutting down an 'active' arena to grow Cannabis?
I am sure it would also be a great investment for the town, wonderful, well paying jobs, too many are out of work and need it. Most importantly - Quality medical cannabis for those who are sick and NEED it! YAY I am sure several members of the community in question, are already benefiting from Medical Cannabis.
So imagine my heart, torn over this article.
Let me also clarify some ‘fear mongering’ going on -
“They are going to haul the marijuana out of the old arena right past the kids in the school across the street and right through the downtown?”
This is a huge industry people - WAKE UP!
I have no doubts that it would be run professionally with proper ventilation, security and the Cannabis would not even be detected if not for this article. Much like a truck backs up to the doors of every Walmart and drops off boxes - you have no idea what is inside until you open the box or see the product on a shelf. It is the same way with medical Cannabis.
So - lets stop that nonsense right now.
I also hope Bobby drops the 'I wonder what they were smoking' when they made this decision attitude. That is just a lack of disrespect for those that use Medical Cannabis.
Not a very considerate or compassionate opinion for ALL involved.
This fear mongering with Cannabis in general has to stop. It is a legally recognized medicine in this beautiful country of ours and it is recognized around the world as a very successful medication helping many. People should be demanding from their Doctors the right to use Cannabis over the more toxic opiates. Our body our choice.
If you don't agree with this you better think long and hard. Over 16,000 deaths a year from PRESCRIBED opiates. SIMPLE. No deaths from Cannabis.
Please... - Kids have it hard enough. They watch too much TV and deal with social media on a level proving to be turning out a generation of shallow, uneducated beings.
Yikes. Kids need to keep active and no arena should be shut down for any reason. The same goes with Libraries and pools. I'm proud my town opened a complex for kids. The ROC.
BUT if it was struggling - I think it would be an awesome idea to boost a local economy & opportunity to educate the town and children on medical cannabis. I am sure this is why they have even considered it in the first place.
