You may have seen in the Thursday, Sept. 23 edition of the 
Democrat-Herald that the Albany City Council placed a moratorium on 
the sale of recreational marijuana from medicinal marijuana 
dispensaries until January 2017. I want to assure my constituents in 
Ward I that I did not vote for this and in fact agreed with the room 
full of our citizens that its passage was a foolish thing to do.

To me it is a sad irony that recreational marijuana use is now legal, 
but we must seek out the criminal element in order to purchase it. As 
always, prohibition is a blessing for the criminal element.
