I am writing to ask that local residents sign our petition to stop the medical marijuana dispensary opening in Fort Lee, New Jersey. I do not believe medical marijuana will be a good fit for our city. There are multiple reasons and public health concerns. Alcohol is legal for 21 years old, but 16-year-old kids still get their hands on it. Let’s make no mistake about it, kids will get their hands on marijuana whether it is medical or pleasure. I still believe it is a gateway drug.

In addition, medical marijuana will not be a good fit for Fort Lee due to high volume of traffic in our neighborhood. It has over 100,000 cars traveling through the community every day. I believe a number of car accidents and crimes will increase after opening a marijuana dispensary. Eventually, this will impact on taxes and the police department.

My business is all about children. Their safety and well-being is my priority.  A recreational or medical marijuana dispensary does not belong to us and I am hoping as a community we can show the Zoning Board and the City Council they should not approve the permit and ask them to go elsewhere. We shouldn’t just give ourselves five minutes to think about it.

I hope you will join me in doing what we can to stop this from happening. Please do what you can to help. Your voice will be heard and will make a difference. If you can take a packet of petitions to have signed at work, by your family members, in your neighborhood, etc. that would also be very helpful.

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
