Contain advice to your own city

Regarding the Wednesday letter, “Keep pot shops out of the city”: A couple of months ago, the Lake Stevens City Council unanimously passed an ordinance allowing the retail sale of marijuana, per initiative 502, in commercial, light industrial and general zones.

The Washington State Liquor Control Board, which regulates marijuana in the state, allowed Lake Stevens one retail marijuana shop through its recent lottery.

The Lake Stevens resident/letter writer is now telling Snohomish residents they shouldn’t have same rights as her own hometown residents; that they must drive, at $4 per gallon of gasoline, to Lake Stevens or Everett to purchase legal marijuana. How hypocritical is that?
