Vegetables better than weed


Dear Editor

I would like to respond to your paper after reading “Cannabis facility construction underway” in your Feb. 28 issue. I am surprised that I have not heard one word of opposition to this operation in the Battlefords.

Here we are living in a relatively safe, free country where millions of dollars are spent on health care, which is the envy of our southern neighbours. We have police protection, EMS service and STARS to serve us in emergencies.

The grow operation being built by Thunderchild and Westleaf will oppose all these benefits by promoting ill health, addiction and crime. I hope many people will decide to boycott this place and maybe force them to change their plans and grow vegetables.
