I have read this lady’s letters for too long now to not respond. Ms. Thorn, I have lived in the Carpinteria area since 1976. I got married here, raised two beautiful children here, and love this town. I count among my friends many members of the Carpinteria City Council, past and present, local growers and citizens. I am “saddened and outraged” (your words – “Cannabis industry,” Letters, CVN, Vol. 25, No. 37) over your continued denigration of our beautiful coastal enclave. So, you don’t like pot—many of us do. Get over it. In all the letters I have read of yours, I have never read anything that proposed a positive or forward-thinking alternative to what you rail against.
