Sorry Mr. Morton but arguments against recreational pot have nothing whatsoever to do with logic. The legalization of pot is new enough that right now there are no reputable figures either way. I have seen State Patrol figures that pot D.U.I.s are up, and I do know that there are a number of deaths attributed to driving under the influence of pot. And I do know that “I’m sorry,” will never, ever be just compensation for a family that has lost a member killed by a pot smoker.
I want to say good for you, Cory Overton. The only thing you left out was that people in the city shouldn’t hold office in the county.

Numerous people have provided guest editorials opposing the city allowing the recreational sale of marijuana. All of the reasons advanced for opposing the recreational sale of marijuana are illogical.
I had to chuckle when I read Mr. James’ statement that his friends would not sign his petition to allow recreational pot here because they would be embarrassed to have people see their names on it. The real reason not enough names were on it is because people would not sign it because they do not want it here.
When is the city council going to step up to the plate and say the people of Craig have already spoken and they do not want pot in Craig. Maybe it’s a legal thing that I don’t understand. We all need to wake up and look at what is happening in Denver and other pot approved communities. A lot of problems with overdosing and driving DUI with drugs. Recently in Denver a young person under the influence of pot was driving and caused an accident that killed another person. The driver said they did not remember doing it.
This letter is being written in response to the letter from Cory Overton that appeared in the Dec. 28 edition of the Letter to the Editor section of the Craig Daily Press newspaper titled “Bad Decision.”
As 2016 draws to a close, I wanted to express my gratitude, and that of the board of directors, volunteers and moms and dads we serve at the Yampa Valley Pregnancy & Family Center to everyone who has given of their finances, time, energy, in-kind donations, printer cartridges, and everything else that has helped us flourish!
We hope the windows of The Budget Center are getting the attention they sure deserve.
I would like to know what constitutes the Moffat County Commissioners to decide they can't afford to plow out the seniors of this community but can plow four miles of a county road 2 miles up and 2 miles back down and the time to get blade there and man hours.
On Thursday afternoon there was a knock on the door, I opened the door and Santa and his elves were there.
Thank you all again for participating.
I am writing this as a HUGE thank you to the person(s) who plowed my driveway after this last big snowstorm. It is greatly appreciated.
The Knights of Columbus would like to thank City Market and Murdoch’s for letting the Knights set up and give away Tootsie Rolls.
