PCDC Discusses Annexation Changes

Surprisingly, eight citizens and two Trustees showed up at Monday evening’s Planning and Community Development Commission (PCDC) meeting. Not surprisingly, six of the citizens were there to talk about unexplored options (the banning of cultivation, infusion, and sale of medical marijuana) the Town might consider. Unfortunately for those six hearty souls who had braved the frigid temperatures instead of watching the Auburn/Oregon game, medical marijuana was not on the agenda. What was on the agenda were possible amendments to the Town’s annexation procedures.

A couple of years ago, he moved his operation to Lyons Village Central

An In Depth Look At Medical Marijuana - Final Chapter

By Ed Bruder

In full disclosure, I am a Trustee for the Town of Lyons, a patient advocate member of the Department of Revenue’s (DoR) Medical Marijuana Working Group, I am a patient myself, a caregiver, and a current business license holder. At this time I have NO financial interest in any medical marijuana business. I write this as an individual member of these various communities. I don’t speak for the Board of Trustees (BoT), and I don’t speak for anyone else but myself.
It has been important to consider the mounting body of research demonstrating the multiple therapeutic benefits of cannabis use in this discussion. However, I would be remiss to not point out the areas of research that have proven that cannabis use, for the developing pre-teen and teenage brain is potentially dangerous.

Last November at the Society for Neuroscience’s annual conference, a Harvard Medical School researcher presented the results of a study that found that; “Young adults, who started smoking marijuana as adolescents or teens, had greater
