Say No To One Gro

Dear Editor,

My​ ​family​ ​and​ ​I​ ​moved​ ​to​ ​Creswell​ ​about​ ​13​ ​years​ ​ago.​ ​What​ ​drew​ ​us​ ​to​ ​Creswell​ ​was the​ ​small​-​town​ ​feel.​ ​​With​ ​its​ ​friendly​ ​community,​ ​variety​ ​of​ ​churches and​ ​quiet​ ​little​ ​downtown, we​ ​knew​ ​this​ ​was​ ​our​ ​home.

My​ ​wife​ ​and​ ​I​ ​recently​ ​adopted​ ​a​ ​child,​ ​and​ ​we’re​ ​in​ ​the​ ​process​ ​of​ ​adopting​ ​a​ ​second. We​ ​look​ ​forward​ ​to​ ​raising​ ​our​ ​kids​ ​in​ ​the​ ​small​-​town​ ​culture​ ​of​ ​Creswell.

Recently,​ ​a​ ​marijuana​ ​company​ ​came​ ​into​ ​town,​ ​attempting​ ​to​ ​overturn​ ​the​ ​vote​ ​of​ ​the people​ ​to​ ​ban​ ​marijuana​ ​dispensaries.​ ​If​ ​this​ ​initiative​ ​is​ ​voted​ ​through​ ​in​ ​November,​ ​it​ ​will change​ ​the​ ​atmosphere​ ​in​ ​Creswell​ ​forever.​

In​ ​the​ ​July​ ​27 ​edition​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Eugene​ ​Weekly,​ ​Dan Isaacson,​ ​CEO​ ​of​ ​One​ ​Gro,​ ​said,​ ​“We’re​ ​not​ ​looking​ ​to​ ​build​ ​a​ ​dispensary​ ​or​ ​to​ ​build​ ​a​ ​cannabis company,​ ​we’re​ ​looking​ ​to​ ​build​ ​a​ ​cannabis​ ​empire.”​ ​Our​ ​beloved​ ​Creswell​ ​would​ ​never​ ​be​ ​the same.​ ​​​I’m​ ​angry​ ​about​ ​how​ ​this​ ​company​ ​came​ ​into​ ​town,​ ​challenging​ ​the​ ​good​ ​citizens​ ​of Creswell.
