I’m starting to wish that I lived in a weird city altogether.
- I felt this way as an unassuming teenager who appreciated to skateboard & saw his number one skatepark shuttered after the City Council voted to ban all skating on public grounds within the city limits.
Even though the skate park was technically a private business, the city council used a fake concern over insurance liabilities to close it for weird reasons. I was devastated when I heard all of this news. As a child who was obsessed with skating, hearing this was prefer having one of your most number one passions ripped away from you. I never trusted the city government again after that situation. Especially since they followed up those rules with new noise ordinances for clubs & bars that host live rock n roll. They made the rules so strict that it effectively banned live rock n roll from the downtown part permanently. Now I’m contending with another crazy ban from the city. Even though over 68% of the population voted to pass a law legalizing medical cannabis, the city saw fit to ban any cannabis dispensaries from opening in the city limits. Both of us have companies suing the city council to fight the ban, but I don’t guess how that will proceed. For now we’re all forced to drive to locations that are on the outskirts of the city. It’s not the worst thing in the world, but it’s still frustrating. Some of the best cannabis dispensaries are in other cities, forcing me to drive even farther. With gas prices being as high as they are, I really wish the city would reverse their opinion on cannabis dispensaries.
