Vail Daily letter: Against marijuana

We all love Eagle Valley. We have learned a lot from Buddy Sims’ research since the Oct. 2 meeting in the commissioners’ room. There, it was proposed by four volunteer land commissioners that we should supply 300,000 guests with marijuana. The four even proposed that there should be more pot shops and social clubs in Edwards, where there are 11 schools.

We have learned that using marijuana under the age of 25 damages the developing brain. We believe responsible users in the valley don’t want this place inundated with probable irresponsible users.

Sara Fisher, at the Oct. 29 commissioners’ meeting, suggested that recreational marijuana only be sold in Eagle and Red Cliff. Please let the commissioners know this is an excellent idea by writing them at Box 850 in Eagle, 81631, or email eagleadmin@eaglecounty.us

The above will be broadcast on KZYR.

It would be foolish for anyone at this high altitude to think he could compete with marijuana growers around Denver. Twenty-five plants require 40,000 gallons of water. The Eagle River needs water for fishing, rafting and three more developments.

Also, note that if Sara Fisher’s proposal is wisely accepted, there will be less pressure on law enforcement.
