Chanin: A modest proposal: Think about the children!!!

Quick, close up all the pot shops! The hippies from the ’60s are coming in droves. Get out while you still can, man! Money-hungry marijuana smokers will soon be stealing your assets, along with your children’s innocence. They will cause 100 car pileups due to their drug-induced driving habits. These lost souls will walk the streets for days mumbling to themselves, “Dude, where’s my car?” Broken vape pens will line the streets and gutters. Drum circles will start to form and slowly grow larger and larger and interconnect until the entire town is engulfed and becomes, itself, one big drum circle …

This is our future if we allow pot shops on Main Street, people. Think about it.

I completely understand not wanting pot shops in your face on Main Street. I feel the same way. I can’t stand all these jewelry stores and bakeries displaying their disgusting merchandise! I mean, they have the nerve to push their products on Main Street where all our kids can see!?! Watches, cupcakes, diamonds, cookies, the list goes on! This teaches our children the mindset of greed, vanity, gluttony and countless other atrocities. Is this really the image we want to portray to them?

Also, I heard that someone was thinking about opening an LGBT bar in town. Are we going to sit idly by and let this happen? What are we going to tell the kids when they ask what it is? What am I supposed to do, sit down and actually talk to my kids and explain to them what’s going on around them and in the world? Next you’re gonna tell me I have to actually go over choices and consequences with them!

Please, keep our kids in protected bubbles. Vote NO on Main Street and in life.
