The question today is very simple, should Grand Junction let a marijuana dispensary open in town? It has been well over a year since the first shops opened in Colorado and yet our community still doesn't have one.

I'm sure there are plenty of people who still think Marijuana is an evil drug that will ruin our country, but there are also a number of people who have changed their minds about the drug.

Our neighbors to the east in DeBeque have now had a dispensary open for a few months and rumor has it another one will open soon.

That means tax dollars that could be coming to the city of Grand Junction are going to DeBeque.

Maybe it is time for Grand Junction to have a public vote and see what the people think.
