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.
