New group is aiming to make a buck under new law

The Vashon Island Marijuana Entrepreneurs Alliance represents yet another group of opportunists with dollar signs in their eyes trying to reinvent the wheel on Vashon. (“Islanders consider Vashon’s future as pot producer,” Oct. 2.)

If they are so ignorant and/or inconsiderate of the contemporary movement, economy and community surrounding marijuana on this island, then they would do best to keep out of it, as a series of recent high-profile robberies demonstrates.
