Letter to the Editor

Oppose legalization

Paso RoblesOctober 22, 2013 

Regarding The Tribune article of Oct. 18 that said that Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom will be starting a blue ribbon panel to study the legalization of marijuana in California, I offer the following questions:

If marijuana is legalized in California, will that mean that panga boats or larger cargo ships will be lining up to dock up and down our coast to offload their cargo? Does it mean that grape growers could tear out their vines and replace them with marijuana grows, which would probably be a more lucrative cash crop?

Please join me in opposing any attempt to legalize marijuana in California.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
