Petition to stop marijuana plans
Take The First Step, a group from the Christian Reformed Church on Mt. Edward Rd. is starting a petition against making pot legal. Take The First Step is trying to spread the message of hope through Christ, to those who are suffering from addiction, and to their families. We are 100 per cent against making pot legal.
I know if you ask 10 people about this topic, you would get 10 answers — all would not be the same. I have talked to a number of people over the last few years who suffer from addiction and the common thread through all their lives - it started with pot. Making it easier for young people to have access to it is bad news. Seventeen per cent will take on an addictive lifestyle.
Over the next few weeks I will be collecting names on the petition. I am hoping other churches will join us or take a public stand against this. Then after it’s all done we will present it to Sean Casey.
If you would like to join us, by signing the petition or by helping us in collecting names I am inviting people to contact me, at 902-213-1507 or email me at email@example.com Mitch Reid, Charlottetown
