WOW! I’ve just read the ballot text requesting our vote on whether to prohibit selling recreational marijuana on Marco Island. The language necessarily used can easily confuse the voter into a mistaken vote. Maybe the following will clarify the issue a little:
- If you do NOT want recreational marijuana (“pot”), sold on Marco Island, you should vote “YES” - [this will permit Marco laws to specify the recreational “pot”-prohibition.]
- If you want recreational marijuana (“pot”), available and sold on Marco Island, you should vote “NO” – [this would keep Marco laws silent on selling “pot” locally.]
Could be a bit confusing, could it not? I hope the above is helpful to fellow Marco voters.
