Feedback: Cannabis battle keeps on brewing

Readers chime in on the latest news surrounding pot legalization in Kelowna

Our story (Kelowna, West Kelowna asking for one-third of pot revenues) drew reaction when posted at kelownacapnews.com.

Rob Lindsay:

These (local politicians) need to be voted out of office. Kelowna and West Kelowna residents deserve strong, forward thinking leadership. We are on the verge of a green revolution that will bring millions of dollars of tax money to provincial, city and municipal coffers, create much needed jobs, and greatly increase the quality of life for many who choose a natural medicine. Wake up and stop this senseless campaign to punish peaceful cannabis users in our community. Stop the stigma and wake up. We are a compassionate community. It’s too bad we are led by clowns and those so deeply out of touch.

Mike Designo:

Both of these (local politicians) are wasting taxpayers money by suing dispensaries. Time for new leadership.

Steven Morehouse:

A municipality should have the authority to do it. Your disgust is understanded, but misdirected. The owner’s of an illegally operating business should bear all the costs.
