Flaherty said he introduced the buffer zone last year, after hearing from residents and local business owners who were nervous about the prospect of recreational marijuana use. (concerns fueled by racist and ignorant American history of false cannabis propaganda and lies)
This is exactly the type of stuff that we are here to tell you about and fight against! This is how it starts folks!
The new system that will be used to oppress, discriminate and create monopolies for the rich and connected few, starts with admittedly premature measures like Councilor Flaherty’s half-mile buffer for all cannabis/marijuana related businesses in Boston. This is the ignorance and lets be honest… racism, that creeps back into the system.
I wrote a lengthy letter and let the council know of their error. Check it out.
The weakening of the legal market is of course support for the illegal one. Which deals to kids. So…
Councilor Flaherty’s measure supports the use of cannabis by minors in the city of Boston, and supports criminal activities.
This is what unchecked racism and ignorance turns into folks! Concerned business owners and residents get irrationally nervous about what they imagine is so very dangerous, but in reality it is their cultural anxieties playing out in their little heads. We have suffered enough for the racist and ignorant concerns of their dominant culture.
