Re Mark Wilson’s July 28 letter, “Florida does not need 2,000 ‘pot shops’ ”: It seems that the only devastating effects should Amendment 2, legalizing medical marijuana, will be that hundreds of thousands of suffering Floridians will get relief from cheap natural plants that won’t cost $50 a pill and come with a list of hazardous side effects a mile long.
I’m sure the Florida Chamber of Commerce’s mission of promoting good private-sector jobs supports the sale of tobacco, which kills half a million Americans annually just as sure as the sun rises and sets. How’s that for devastating?
And I’m guessing the chamber’s position is with the frackers in adding more carcinogens to our drinking water because it creates jobs. Forget people’s health and safety. Millions will suffer illness, and many will get cancer.
