The citizens of Fresno County have been hoodwinked! Hoodwinked by our city, our county and our law enforcement administrators.
The people of Fresno have been told that “legally” controlled medical marijuana promotes crime. In the news, one hears only about crime gravitating around legal marijuana “grow sites” and dispensaries. It seems we only hear about the very worst of what medical marijuana offers patients and their community. When crimes occur around a legitimate marijuana business, it’s immediately identified as a marijuana business.
When we see or hear about random shootings around the city, the people of Fresno can’t learn that most of these shootings are in some way related to the dangerous world of black-market drugs. Buyers of black-market drugs, as well as sellers, are getting robbed and shot every day yet we never hear why. We just hear there were random shootings.
For those who depend on medical marijuana in Fresno, that’s the dark world our city council, our county administrators, our police and our sheriff want law-abiding citizens to spend their money for their “legally” approved medication. One question: Why do these entrepreneurs of Fresno’s black market have so much political power in Fresno County?
