    It isnít every day that you read a letter complimenting the Rutland City Board of Aldermen. But as you read through this letter, it applauds the Board of Aldermen, under the leadership of David Allaire for their unanimous vote to ban marijuana dispensaries.

    Rutland County has a terrible drug epidemic. Supporting the movement of institutionalizing marijuana dispensaries throughout this community would just add more exposure to another temptation. The Rutland City police have enough to worry about with street drug usage. We find a community ravaged by the abuse of drugs, which just took the life of a pure and innocent young lady. The board and Chief Baker made the right decision to not let these dispensaries into the boundaries of this community.

    To help fight the drug problem, it makes absolutely no sense to encourage the use of marijuana by prescription. I pray that the communities surrounding Rutland City, including my beloved Rutland Town take up the same initiative and pass similar ordinances.

    Once again, thank you to the Board of Alderman and Police Chief Baker for your conservative outlook on this controversial solution to health care and pain relief.
