Letter: Pendleton has gone mad with marijuana money

Published on March 8, 2018 4:48PM

Eventually, when there are too many marijuana grows, they go broke and can no longer afford to operate. Meanwhile, the city of Pendleton gets a big sum of money for each marijuana operation for which the city issues a license.

Why not let the city license multiple marijuana grows and let the grows go bankrupt like they do in other cities in Oregon, so the city can receive more money?

When the overproduction of marijuana drives the price down, marijuana doesn’t just end up in the hands of people who aren’t supposed to have it. It ends up on our dining room table whether we know it or not.

I contacted the Meat and Poultry Hotline and they said: “The rules about what animals can be fed takes into account the possibility of residues that would end up in the food. The individual states make their own rules about humane handling of livestock.”

It’s time to get mad because there’s too much reefer.
