Does Fletcher dislike Larsen?

Local pot advocates are grey haired, working class, taxpaying people who don’t appreciate being categorized as stereotypical pothead image.

To the Editor,

Re: Marijuana “reeferendum” misguided. BC Views, Oct. 10.

My name is Kim and I am the local organizer for Sensible BC/Alberni Pacific Rim.

I read this column and started to write Mr. Fletcher, but have shifted my disappointment to this newspaper.

Today (Oct. 10), this long column was printed in your paper bashing our efforts and character.

We are a grey haired, working class, taxpaying group of people who don’t appreciate being categorized into the stereotypical pothead image.

We are all volunteers donating time and materials.

All I hear in Mr. Fletcher’s sad column is a personal dislike of Dana Larsen and his efforts. Mr. Fletcher says he has been a pot advocate for 20 years. So, could this be a personal dislike or jealousy of Dana?

Our approval has been huge and motivating.

Kim Blake,

Port Alberni
