Letter: Marijuana ad misrepresents Glenwood Springs

I cannot believe it. I am looking at the “special” front page of the Post Independent for July Fourth. A beautiful display of what we have in GWS and the symbol of our great country. And what do I see on the bottom of the page?

An ad for a “pot” store and its Fourth of July specials.

Come on! Is this what we want to represent our town and the Roaring Fork Valley?

It is a discredit to our town, the valley and our great country. It gives the wrong impression as to what we are about.
