Letter: Mental health funding shouldn’t just fall on shoulders of marijuana users
After reading Amanda Precourt’s letter to the editor on Friday, Nov. 3 (“I wanted to make it all end …”), I realized that the elephant in the room regarding Ballot Issue 1A needs to be acknowledged. Mental health is an issue for many people, not just those who use marijuana, so why shouldn’t we all pay to provide the services that are so badly needed? I strongly support the need for these services but do not believe that the funding should fall on the shoulders of a select few. I’m voting “no” on Ballot Issue 1A.
