As a real estate agent, I am always happy to help people buy homes in our friendly city. People are attracted to Creswell for the small-town family environment. In November when our town voted down having a pot dispensary I was really proud that our citizens were not afraid to be different from the surrounding towns.
Seeing pot shops all over surrounding towns is not pretty and sends the wrong message to our kids. I do not want to deny people their rights to medical or recreational marijuana, but I don’t want a shop, manufacturing plant or distribution center to be part of the landscape of Creswell.
