I read a couple letters in last week’s CVN that said cannabis farming was a bad thing. My question is, what about the hundreds and hundreds of people who work on cannabis farms? Do they not count? Those families are putting food on the table supported by dependable jobs.

Carpinteria is an ag town. It’s the way we like it. It’s interesting that last week’s CVN also had an economic report that said crime is down, real estate and tourism are up, and the economy is healthy (CVN Vol. 25, No. 37). How could we even think about putting so many good companies out of business? Particularly those that employ our most economically vulnerable neighbors.
