The Nelson Star should be ashamed. Putting a story about a new pot dispensary on the front page of the paper and detailing their business is essentially giving a premium one page ad for free to an illegal business.
It is upsetting to me as a woman who owns a legal business in town and would love a lengthy free article about my company in the paper. The story should not have been front page news and should have focused on the industry and what Nelson is doing instead with a one-liner that another dispensary has opened.
I am not against using marijuana but detailing it as a woman’s business and the reason why it was started along with a photo is just irresponsible and unfair reporting.
