Featured Letter: No drugs for sale here

With a tentative OK from Riverhead officials agreeing to put Suffolk County’s first “medical marijuana dispensary” on East Main Street, what part of this do the residents of Millbrook Gables seem to not understand?

They are apparently angry over such a clinic being situated at an oncology office because of the many drug-related crimes in this neighborhood.

Certain members of the Riverhead Town Board also don’t seem to grasp the fact that this is a medical dispensary. The office will supply medical marijuana to patients who need relief from pain, and is not the neighborhood drug dealer who sells “weed” to anyone with the cash.
