They call us NIMBY’s

Dear cannabis lobby,

Calling your opposition NIMBYs is fun and easy!

It’s a great way to erase myriad valid arguments against pot production in rural neighborhoods.

Just throw a label on them and BAM everything gets simple. They’re just NIMBYs. Damn clueless, selfish NIMBYs trying to stop progress. They just don’t get how good it is in potopia. IE: Colorado, Humboldt.

We have had 22 home invasion incidents and 11 murders at pot grows in the past 3 years.

We had another shooting at a legal grow recently, with an attempted murder. The myth that legalization leads to less crime has been debunked.

Colorado has had 11 pot related homicides since legalization. How is that working?

Here are 3 articles showing that legalization does not reduce crime:

Here are some other cases of NIMBY hysteria.

Pot growers invaded this persons land, NIMBY need to learn to share I guess

These people are surrounded by growers and their story is harrowing. Let them know they are just being NIMBYs

These people have to endure a pot grow 20 feet away. More NIMBYs

This taxpayer lives in fear of the pot growers who block her driveway. Only a NIMBY would care.

These people can no longer use their outdoors, have barbeques. Because of a winery? Guess again.

These people lost their life savings when a grow took over their neighborhood. Just being NIMBYs I guess

This family lost $100,000 in property value when a grow moved in. Blatant NIMBYISM. I mean why should someone else’s neighborhood be affected?

These people are deluged with noxious environmental stench from a grow not even that close. Wear a nose plug, NIMBY.

This NIMBY couple slept with baseball bats and fire extinguishers in their locked master bedroom for 2-1/2 years. Due to a vineyard? No, guess again.

Due to the dangerous risks put on this family, they vacated their NIMBY home in a rural residential area of Penngrove and moved to Richmond for 6 weeks
