City council to discuss recreational use of marijuana in Craig


Tonight, Craig City Council will discuss what the city wants to do with Amendment 64, concerning recreational marijuana.

In past discussions, the council considered making an ordinance to either allow or not allow recreation shops to open in Craig. Another option the council is considering is to let the voters decide on a ballot question in November.

City council meets at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall, and the line item to discuss marijuana states that council will have a “discussion of options for complying with Amendment 64 of the state constitution regarding personal use and commercial regulation of marijuana.”

Council meetings are open to the public.

What is to discuss? A republican-controlled council that believes in individual freedom, less government and claims to be pro-business should support any legal business. It may, however, be in direct competition with Tom Mathers' current legal drug business - peddling alcohol. That being the case, and having always been of the utmost character, I am sure Tom will abstain from voting on this issue. Thanks for doing the right thing, Tom.

Since this is the City Council having the discussion over Amendment 64, Tom Mather's has nothing to do with it.

That's true. I'm sure the county will step in at some point.

I'm sure you're right. Sooner or later the county will have to get involved in this too.

If the voters green light recreational use, local approval remains at odds with federal law. The Obama Administration has made a lot of noise about going after those jurisdictions who issue a thumbs-up to recreational use. I'm not a user and don't really know where that stands. I'll just pop some corn and enjoy the show.
