As usual Dennis, you're right on point.
Thanks to the coaches and young men of the Moffat County basketball team for their display of good behavior and excellent sportsmanship. Also, thank you to Mr. Schayes for acknowledging it.
There is a new and strongly emerging industry that is causing an extraordinary boom in the commercial real estate business. Soon those people looking for reasonably priced commercial real estate could be lured to Moffat County if the County Commissioners and City Council had the sense to allow it instead of imposing their moral beliefs upon the population.
Ending the local prohibition on cannabis isn't going to rescue Craig but it sure could fill a lot of those empty spaces mentioned in this opinion piece.
The Amendment 64 bus is pulling out of the station and Craig, CO isn't on it. Want to fill some warehouses? End prohibition. Want to put some people to work? End prohibition. How about some sales tax dollars? End prohibition. I certainly realize that ending the local prohibition on cannabis will not save this dying town but it sure would give it a booster shot.
Was there any discussion about what the chicken permit fee will be used for?
You crack me up Dennis. Thanks.
Hey Dennis, I've read several of your other comments regarding this topic so it should be known that I am not replying to your comment here for the purpose of arguing. This reply is to give you, and others an idea of how this legitimate industry could benefit Moffat County. Here is a list of fields that could profit from the cannabis industry:
This is just a short list off the top of my head. I'm not sure how familiar you are with the internet but a fairly basic search would reveal several more businesses that have developed from this industry without even having to grow or sell marijuana. I believe I can safely assume that there are probably a few property owners in town who have vacant warehouses that they would like to rent or sell. There are also a few local contractors who probably wouldn't mind landing a 20 or thirty thousand dollar job to turn a warehouse into a safe and efficient growing operation. I'll even go out on a limb here and say that the county might even want a few extra tax dollars. Maybe they could have allocated that money to keep the Luttrell barn from falling down.
But I could be wrong also. Maybe these people would rather see rundown, decrepit warehouses. Maybe there are contractors out there who don't like working. Maybe our county doesn't have any use for extra revenue. It looks like that's the case so far.
Thanks for giving Measure 1A some attention. This is an important measure to pass in order to give our community an opportunity to embrace a new and profitable industry.
I would like to clarify that Measure 1A pertains strictly to the cultivation of recreational marijuana. I mentioned medical marijuana in my letter as an example of an already successful decision made by Colorado voters.
