Charlton Selectboard: Please rescind VGG 5/15/18 Letter of Non-Opposition & Host Agreement
On May 15, 2018, the Charlton Board of Selectmen voted to send a letter of non-opposition and in favor of a host community agreement with Valley Green Grow to build a 1,000,000 to 3,000,000 square foot industrial greenhouse facility, cultivation center, processing space, and retail dispensary of medical and adult use recreational marijuana products at Charlton Orchards (44 Old Worcester Road, Charlton MA). This project is likely the largest marijuana processing facility in North America. Charlton Orchards is located in a neighborhood with over 25 residential abutters and in close proximity to three schools. Abutters were not notified in advance of the BOS meeting, and the posted BOS meeting agenda was sufficiently vague that citizens were unaware of the content of the meeting. There were no public hearings held in advance of the vote. Due to the shoddy process undertaken and the overwhelmingly residential location of the industrial size project, we respectfully request the Charlton Board of Selectmen rescind their letter of non-objection and host community agreement for Valley Green Grow.

Petition to Xfinity
Xfinity: Remove dangerous crib from the Xfinity Baby ad
UPDATE: Xfinity has agreed to remove this image from their ad rotation at the encouragement of KID and with your support! To read their letter, click here. Thank you to everyone who signed and shared the petition! Six-month-old Aiden never even had a chance to cry. Medical experts reported that Aiden died silently, suffocating on oxygen-depleted air in the corner of his crib, trapped by his crib’s bumper pad. His mother, only a few feet away, had no idea. Aiden was not the first baby, nor will he be the last, to suffocate due to a seemingly harmless crib bumper pad. Although these bumpers are marketed – in a wide array of fashionably cute designs – to protect babies from injury, they have in many cases done quite the opposite. Child safety experts and government agencies across the country agree that crib bumper pads are at best a potential safety risk, and at worst; lethal to the babies they are meant to protect. Xfinity’s commercial spotlighting a baby in his crib while the family’s old alarm system is crunching on chips is a catchy commercial. Xfinity is attempting to communicate the importance of ensuring the baby's safety, but Xfinity failed to demonstrate a safe crib to the public – instead they advertised a very unsafe crib. Xfinity’s crib had toys, pillows and a bumper pad, which is becoming illegal to buy and sell in different cities in the U.S. The images of a happy child in a dangerous crib can confuse caregivers and give the impression that what is dangerous is actually safe. We cannot afford ads that make dangerous cribs seem normal. Help Kids in Danger keep babies safe! Sign our petition to demand that Xfinity clear their crib of dangerous soft bedding and bumpers.
