A big issue right now, in my opinion, is the closing of all dispensaries in our area. Will the closures affect our local economy, since it seems that there were so many businesses affected by these dispensaries? I’d also love to hear opinions from other Eastsiders in regards the Medicinal Marijuana debate.
Were these legitimate businesses to begin with and should they be closed? How will this affect crime in our area now that a hot commodity (MJ) has been put right back into criminal hands? In my opinion, Avenues and Dogtown gangs must be happy campers knowing the MJ trade is back to the black market.
