To the Editor:
The very first time I browse Councilwoman Nancy Davis’ quote in The SandPaper, I was positive she was misquoted, until eventually this 7 days when I read the specific identical quote relating to the introduction of an ordinance about cannabis functions in Beach Haven.
Ms. Davis states that “it’s much better for them to buy it below than from a delivery assistance in yet another community.” She goes on to say the borough would enjoy tax profits of somewhere around $50,000 per month. In which, I surprise, did she arrive up with this quantity? Why has no 1 challenged that determine?
Later on in the write-up, Davis goes on to advise that we could make investments that cash in youth programs. Am I missing a little something listed here? She needs to choose the funds from drug product sales to stop our youth from “hanging out.” Which is like telling the youth in Seaside Haven not to get this drug till they are of age, but it will also teach a lesson of how considerably revenue medicines can deliver. Davis’ argument that marketing pot will assistance children is weak. It has no foundation and it’s sending the wrong concept. As an elected official, Davis should really be held accountable to describe particularly the place that $50,000-a-month range is coming from.
Feel about it. Councilperson Davis needs to make Seashore Haven the hashish drug center on Very long Beach front Island. You can get in touch with it cannabis, grass, weed, pot or reefers, but it is genuinely just dope. Why does this make zero feeling and why aren’t Beach Haven residents upset by this insanely naive imagining?
