Technically I agree that the consensus may be skewed with the same people going to several meetings but they were all opened to the public. My bet is many feel adding pot shops in Gloucester is not a good idea for many reasons. Perhaps in the future the question should be revisited after real data of the effects come in from around the state.Karly wrote: Yeah...I don't see any undecideds in there...and there were some but I don't think they collected that data in all the meetings. Also 95 people, some at multiple meetings? Not representative of the voters. The one I went to was very skewed toward those who were obviously (from their comments) strongly against the legalization in the first place and fearful of any retail.
There is a public hearing on this subject this month. If anyone doesn't want a moratorium, you should go...because that is what will happen unless people object (and it will happen without a ballot question most likely.) You can also write or call your counselors, mayor, jim destino, etc.

Show me the evidence that legal weed causes crime to increase, uncontrollable addiction and rampant medical, health, financial, family, physical, mental and social ills!! After Portugal legalized all drugs, none of the above occurred.

Legal weed doesn't cause crime to increase, but it does increase the sale of take-out pizza & Chinese food.
