POT: City Council must be decisive

Re: “City pot moratorium approved” (TNT, 8-3)

My hat is off to the Tacoma City Council for providing my laugh for the day. Ever since medical pot was made legal, our city officials have lost their minds.

Some pot businesses are banned, some are not. Old sellers are OK, but don’t anyone dare open a new one. We’re going to shut you down but, hey, you over there, we’re going to leave you open.

Does the council really think the pot growers and sellers are going to wait around for a nod of approval to carry on their businesses? Who’s in charge? Right now it looks like the marijuana folks.

It will be interesting to see just how long these indecisions continue to be mulled over. I’m sure it’s a tough battle, but whether for or against pot, we need a council that can come to a conclusion.

    It’s still against Federal law.

    Itialian, a fed law that I’m not sure is in their perview to pass. Anyway, the manner the Med Pot law is currently being enforced gives the appearance of some under table payoffs.

    I have the right to carry an open weapon in public, drink as much alcohol as I want, smoke ciggerettes, take whatever pills I can get prescribed for me, write and publish hateful material; all this and much more, but I am not allowed legally to grow, imbibe, or even be in posession of the single most benificial plant known to man. We hold these truths to be self evident: that anyone who has a problem with the legalization of the plant known as marijuanna is either ignorant, corrupt, or a coward; that the prohibition of this plant has cost hundreds of billions of totally wasted dollars; that there is not a single valid reason for it to ever have been banned; and that there is no constitutional way for it to ever have been banned. The Bill of Rights is printed on hemp paper. That is a sad irony!
