I write to you to express my dismay in the lack of insight of the
mayor and city council by denying a business licence to Mary Jane's
Glass and Gifts "WEEDS", a medical marijuana dispensary, which you
fine on a daily basis for operating without said business licence.

I personally use marijuana from this dispensary to ease body pain
caused by my diabetes as well as migraine headaches. It is much nicer
to be able to use the dispensary rather than visiting a drug dealer
where other drugs may be present and the possibility of criminal
involvement like theft is also present. The dispensary is a very safe
place to do business. The people who work there are informative and
helpful in selecting a strain to meet your needs. The dispensary is
very strict on who they sell to. You must be of age and have a medical

With the legalization of marijuana in the near future the operators
are entrepreneurs getting a head start with the opening of the dispensary.

In the name of harm reduction our municipal leaders should issue a
business licence to the dispensary so they may help their patients
with their needed medication. I hope and pray city council will issue
a business licence in the very near future.
