Say No to Medical Marijuana Dispensaries in Our Communities
The residents of Prince Georges County Maryland oppose the introduction of a Medical Marijuana Dispensary in our communities. Locating such a facility poses a serious threat to the safety and quality of life in this community. There is currently a proposed location in Camp Springs which is near houses of worship, schools, a senior services facility, daycare programs, youth programs, recreation centers, and in an area where many family oriented activities occur.
This area has more than 10 gas stations in a two-mile radius and extremely heavy traffic, especially during rush hour. Locating a dispensary in this area would aggravate an already delicate safety situation.
Finally, it is believed that marijuana dispensaries may present a substantial increase in crime in the surrounding communities.This petition will be sent to council members for their consideration in rejecting approval of a dispensary in Camp Springs and vote against CB-103-2017.
