Weigh in on recreational marijuana Tuesday

The public will have an opportunity to address the issue of recreational marijuana at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Durango City Council meeting. The vote is in. Marijuana is legal. The city needs to listen to people at this meeting and prepare to implement the law.

All interested parties, whether for or against retail stores and regulations, should make plans to attend and be heard. As a community we are entitled to speak to our elected government officials and ask that the law be followed.

It is high time that Durango stops kicking the can down the road. We ought to be able to plan for a few retail establishments to join our city. We need the tax dollars and the safety the law affords.
