Letter: With marijuana store decision looming, remember that ‘people get the government they deserve’

The Granby Town Board is 100-percent opposed to a marijuana pot shop at the western edge of Granby and is asking the Grand County Board of Commissioners to reject the pending pot-shop license.

— William Hamilton, Grand County
