Arguments against a dispensary make no sense

Paso Robles



 I don’t understand the arguments against a local medical marijuana dispensary. Allow me to paraphrase what I hear: “It’s not that I deny medical marijuana’s validity; it’s that I don’t want it sold in my town,” or “I understand it’s real medicine but I think a storefront will breed crime.” How is that any different from, “It’s not that I deny aspirin’s validity, I just don’t want it sold in my town”?
