Mr. Lausin, There are good number of people in Craig that Don't want it to grow, and live there because it IS a backwater little town. Craig has Always been a boom/bust economy, and those that have weathered them enjoy the booms while they're on a roll, but look forward to the busts when all of those that moved to Craig because they saw something they liked and then set to trying to change all the things they didn't like leave. I do however believe retail pot in Craig is a Good idea.
I'm confused...."The standing snow there stood at 15 inches on Dec. 6 and more than doubled to 26 inches on Dec. 12.".... to more than double, wouldn't it have to be MORE than 30 inches.
Whenever the herd for deer, elk, antelope, moose, bison, bear, mountain lion, etc grows larger than the area they are in can support, they open up a hunting season.....
As George Carland would say (and I've toned it down a bit) "Sex is legal, and selling is legal, so why isn't selling sex legal?"
One hopes the down time for the Galaxy was spent cleaning that place up! When your feet stick to the carpet, it makes me suspect...
What a tragic loss! My heart goes out to the incredible family this young man has.
However you advocate the smoking of marijuana to pay for the schools within the city and county borders?
Quite a turn around in just 6 short months eh?

To vicinsb: I think all the things you cited are short term issues. The issues that will harm me. you and other tax payers are long term issues. Just like cigarette, and alcohol use, the effects of using any drug are long term effects. People that use marijuana will have issues with their brain later in life. This will lead to more people needing long term care. Many will likely have this care provided by taxpayers.
Marijuana use may also leads to lung cancer, just as with any form of smoking. It is also likely that many of these people will need their care provided by taxpayers.
Some people will abuse pot use and spend their money on it instead of the clothes and food their children need. Causing more need for taxpayer assistance. These are just a few. There are likely more.
Making money in the short term can easily be over taken by the ill effects of the long term. Just as the long term effects of alcohol abuse harm many more people than just those that drink. Don't grab for the easy ring, when the chances it having a hook in it are real."
Wow Allen, for a person who was formerly adamantly against all pot smokers who were going to destroy the world, you've certainly changed your stance??
What a breath of fresh air! Someone actually taking responsibility for their own actions as opposed to blaming it on someone or something else.
Thank you Grant and with that attitude, you'll do well!
