Pot is fair crop

With regard to San Mateo approving cannabis farming, concern was expressed regarding becoming the “Napa Valley of pot.” I am not sure what the problem is with being regarded as the home of product that is known worldwide for its superior qualities.

With the well documented damage alcohol continues to bring on our communities, I assume there would be the same concern if the Christian Brothers decided to start making wine and brandy again and planted large swaths of grapes or perhaps the Trappists moved and started making beer.

To those who are concerned about the “message we are sending to our youth and children”; the message we are sending is that like alcohol, the industry will be regulated by a government agency and the product is to be used by adults.

To those immigrants that thought they were “getting away from the drug cartels.” Guess what? Welcome to America. You did get away from the cartels. This industry will not be run by lawless thugs and sociopaths.
