Writing in Favor of Having Three Marijuana Dispensaries in Town

To the Editor:

I am in favor of having three marijuana dispensaries in Princeton. Then I could pick the marijuana shop I wanted to patronize based on my view of the quality of the various products offered. Parking availability, knowledgeable staff, and ambiance would probably count too.

As an 80-year-old and grandparent of three, I am of course concerned about anything that could harm young people. But my concerns for youngsters run more to the dangers from bicycle accidents, unattended swimming pools, drunk drivers — and global warming and nuclear war.

Our country survived during 12 years of governance by individuals who had some contact with marijuana (Clinton, Bush, Obama). Surely the town of Princeton can survive the presence of three legal marijuana shops.
