Isn’t alcohol more dangerous than cannabis?
[RE: Citrus Heights Letters: Sound walls, cannabis; Feb. 7th] I recently saw someone post how marijuana has historically caused crime issues. Does the sale of alcohol which has historically caused more death by not only drunk drivers and other instances of drunken stupidity. How many deaths are attributed to cannabis? I find it hypocritical that tobacco and alcohol are sold so freely when they have a higher death rate per capita.

Citrus Heights should change rules on cannabis
For more than seven years local governments in Sacramento County, outside of the City of Sacramento, have chosen to use their authority to obstruct and delay making cannabis products available to their citizens. It’s past time for Citrus Heights to stop dragging its feet and adopt reasonable rules.

Why do firefighters get to beg in the streets?
[RE: 2024 ‘Boot for Burns’ fundraiser going on this weekend in Citrus Heights; Feb. 7th] Every year the intersection of Greenback and Sunrise is clogged up with men in their firefighting gear walking among the cars. This is an event I do not like, as no other charity gets to go out in their working clothes and do the same. Surely the firefighters are paid enough; reminds me of the border crossing at Tijuana. Either allow all the other people seeking money out there or stop this kind of “donation.”
