I’m upset with Fresno County Board of Supervisors and our City Council. I’ve never heard them acknowledge the glaring fact that there is an enormous amount of crime and violence associated with alcohol and bars!
Not once have I heard of a member of these boards make a suggestion about closing up Fresno’s bar scene to protect their community. I’ve never heard of them attempt to restrict the community’s access to bars and alcohol (which is much more dangerous and toxic than marijuana). If Fresno’s leaders were half as concerned for the safety of Fresno’s residents as they imply, then why is alcohol still being bought and sold in Fresno County?
Obviously, our Fresno leaders have decided to discriminate against those individuals who have found marijuana to be a viable medicine for their medical issues. They have even strategized on how best to cause the maximum amount of pain and suffering to those vulnerable individuals in our community who use marijuana to reduce their pain and suffering.
Fresno leaders have no moral compass and lack empathy for the most vulnerable members of their own community.
