To the Editor: I have been concerned for several weeks since reading of a possible store rental on our Main Street to a \u201cpharmaceutical\u201d marijuana\/cannabis business. Yes, I know some people will hasten to declare these CBD products will be only pharmacological and not the kind of marijuana that produces brain-stimulating highs. However, it appears the store space they want to rent would be a neighbor of Deborah Ann\u2019s Sweet ice cream shop, as well as next to the Sugarbeads\/Zoe & Co. store which will feature birthday parties. Both of these businesses attract many children, and I do believe this line of stores is in a school zone. The other day, I went to Deborah Ann\u2019s and saw that in front of the store and inside were many children enjoying ice cream. I believe they were from the Boys & Girls Club with their counselor. Most people will agree marijuana is considered the \u201cgateway drug\u201d to so many of the far more dangerous drugs out there. We must be aware of examples we set before our growing children. I do predict if that Pharma [Pharm Stand] store goes in at its proposed location near stores favored by children, our young ones will soon be calling it \u201cThe Pot Shop\u201d and will see adults entering to \u201cstroll through the weeds!\u201d Is this a good Main Street image we want for our lovely town of Ridgefield? Catherine Sementini Old Wagon Road, July 29 Editor\u2019s note: The Pharm Stand, opening at 470 Main Street this summer, is not located next to Deborah Ann\u2019s or Zoe & Co. That storefront remains vacant.
