If Mr. Rocco Crescenzi is going to close stores for selling paraphernalia, 
he will have to close all the stores in Watertown N.Y.

Most of, if not all, the gas-convenient stores sell rolling papers. Is Mr. 
Crescenzi going to use drastic measures on them? Mr. Crescenzi is going to 
close the High Life because of water bongs! All a person needs is a pint or 
quart jar, a piece of flexible 1/2 inch hose, couple 1/2 inch pipe 
fittings, a reducer and small tube silicone, clamp, little ingenuity and 
presto you have a water pipe.

You can buy any of the above items at a department store, hardware store, 
or a grocery store. Are you going to take drastic measures against those 
stores too? Some of those stores have had their pictures in the papers 
giving you checks.( Don't bite the hand that feeds you!)

I got the above information from the shows on T V called "COPS" I bet 
millions of "kids" did too. The best episode was the Las Vegas police 
officer the gave instructions on how to use a sock and a can of spray paint 
to do inhalants. It was kind of like a nation wide D.A.R.E. class.

Why do you have to worry about the "kids"? Isn't D.A.R.E. working? In 1999 
the federal Government gave out $700 million for D.A.R.E. classes. That 
doesn't include the personal and corporate donations.

About inhalants, are you going to picket to have all spray paint cans 
removed from stores? Maybe have all production of gas stopped?

Mr. Crescenzi is harassing a legitimate business, the authorities have all 
approved it. Mr. Crescenzi is breaking the law not Mr. Fleming or Mr. Strader.

If he pickets the High Life store, I hope recreational marijuana smokers 
come out by the thousands and stand across from you and hold up the 
Constitution of the United States of America. I think it's time for 
recreational marijuana smokers to come out of the closet and prove to the 
public that they are not the  low lifes that Mr. Crescenzi's organization 
profiles them as.
