William Hall, Brad Gillis, Matt Holloway, It's not who you know, it's what you blow
Salisbury News can report that the three gentlemen above have not only traveled out of the country to inspect other growing facilities, they are very interested as partners in building a facility here in Wicomico County to grow medical marijuana.
I think it's important that the public become aware that yet another elected official is using his weight to garnish special interest in the hope of becoming a front runner.
Senator Jim Mathias has also shown his interest in helping his boss Odachowski in becoming a front runner in Worcester County.
Wow, to be politically connected, you are now looking at possible future multi millionaires because of who you know.
It has been reported that IF they do in fact get their license to grow marijuana, Matt Holloway will resign from the County Council. It was also reported that they expect to profit anywhere between $15,000,000.00 to $20,000,000.00 annually.
On another note, what most people are not aware of is that these grow farms will hire between 30 to 50 employees, most will be security guards. One facility was recently raided by what some claim could be cartels and or gangs. Everyone that was present, (employees) were killed. Do we really want that kind of trouble here on the Eastern Shore?
Another thought. Why can't we just buy our medical marijuana from Colorado?
You should also know that NONE of the Counties in the state of Maryland will receive a DIME from the sale of this industry. The state will receive $50.00 an ounce but the counties get NOTHING.
So a select few will instantly become multimillionaires, the residents of these communities will possibly be subjected to cartel or gang murders and the communities take all the risk.
Finally, homelessness will increase, crime will go UP, auto insurance will rise, more clinics will be required, (at taxpayers expense) welfare, ebt and other government subsidies will go up and here's the kicker, ALL of this has happened in Colorado. Funny how the Main Stream Media has swept this under the rug.
I say, cut a deal with other states or counties and buy direct from them instead. Especially since this doesn't benefit us in the least. This is throwing good money after bad money.
