Bridgeport mayor backs proposed marijuana farm

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch says the city's zoning commission is moving too slowly to promote economic growth and cited its recent rejection of a plan to open a medical marijuana farm.

In an interview with the Connecticut Post Finch said the Planning and Zoning Commission should be more pro-business. The commission rejected on Monday a proposal to locate a marijuana farm in a warehouse.

Fairfield resident Rob Schulter wants to take advantage of Connecticut's recent legalization of medical marijuana and grow and sell pot wholesale.

The zoning board said there are too many unknowns and raised concerns about security and whether employees could steal the marijuana.

Finch said the pot farm is a legal use and that officials should make sure business plans will not stall.

The newspaper could not reach the zoning chairman for comment.

Yes, let's make sure all the handout takers in Bridgeport have easy access to free weed as that will help keep them ignorant and unemployable and keep them on the Democrat plantation..
