To the Editor:
Firstly, I’d like to thank Mr. & Mrs. Planning Board member very much for your help on my petition. Thank you again. We are moving forward very well, getting ready for town meeting on May 14. Article – Recreational marijuana establishment ban, will be Article # “One” on the agenda at town meeting this year, making it possible for seniors or others to go home early. But will have a chance to vote first. We need your help. Thank you.
“Mattapoisett is Special.” Let’s keep it that way. We need to take action now to prevent commercial pot trade from moving into Mattapoisett.
We should not legalize an industry that has commercialized a drug that is devastating to our kids, teens, and young adults.
It doesn’t matter until it matters, then it’s too late to matter.
Seniors can call the selectmen’s office for a ride to and from town meeting.
Opinions lead to facts, facts lead to reality. The reality is very plain and simple. We do not need recreational marijuana in the town of Mattapoisett. What we do need is for the registered voters of Mattapoisett to show up at town meeting to vote and support Article One. The character of Mattapoisett must be protected at all cost.
We must spend some quality time on this issue before it’s too late.
George Randall, Mattapoisett
