Dear Councilman Cohen,
– Advertisement –
Thanks for sharing your extensive thoughts on the cannabis dispensaries and your frequent communications. I would like to take issue with some of your statements that echo those of Mayor Bhalla, Michael Russo, Commissioner Allen and others in Team Bhalla. I find it disingenuous to criticize Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher who undoubtedly got things wrong during the first set of meetings and then talk about how you and the other Council members amended the ordinances at least three times after. It logically follows that you ( the mayor and 8 council people in total) got the ordinances wrong . This is a new industry and everybody had to learn about how to manage it. The ad honimen attacks politicize the issues unnecessarily and makes the second ward residents feel like we are ignored and punished through no fault of our own. Blaming your colleagues on the council for recognizing that they made mistakes and trying to fix them does feel wrong to me, don’t you agree?
You continue to repeat faulty logic and confuse the issue of whether we should have cannabis dispensaries with
