Marijuana statement oxymoron

I was not able to attend the Richfield Township meeting Aug. 29 regarding an ordinance governing the establishment of businesses dealing with medical marijuana. Therefore, I read the article “Richfield board hears pros, cons of marijuana ordinance” (Resorter, Aug. 31) with interest.

One of the quotes that caught my attention, in the article, was made by Trustee Gary Milner where he was quoted saying that marijuana is not a serious problem in the community.

“Heroin is the problem,” said Milner. “Plenty of people (here) are smoking pot every day.”

Hmmmm… Marijuana is not a serious problem in the community. “Plenty of people (here) are smoking pot every day.” To me that sure sounds like an oxymoron.
