I’m starting to wish that I lived in a different city altogether.
I felt this way as an unassuming teenager who loved to skateboard and saw his favorite 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 different reasons. I was devastated when I heard all of this news. As a kid who was obsessed with skating, hearing this was like having one of your most favorite 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 and bars that host live music. They made the rules so strict that it effectively banned live music from the downtown area permanently. Now I’m contending with another ridiculous ban from the city. Even though over 70% 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. We have companies suing the city council to fight the ban, but I don’t know 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 annoying. 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.
