Marijuana dispensary considered in Webster Village
The Village of Webster is currently considering repealing their opt-out legislation and allowing cannabis retail. The proposed location is the former Taylor Rental storefront on North Ave. and it may include a drive-through.
We have a very brief window to express our concern and hopefully convince the Board to reconsider. If you are an adult Webster resident, please take a moment now to read and sign this petition to let our village leaders know how residents feel.

Prevention through healthier choices can free young people from the consequences associated with early drug and alcohol exposure, such as substance use disorders, STDs, behavioral and health problems, early pregnancy, and crime. Businesses benefit from prevention, too. In fact, the U.S. Small Business Administration reports that when employees with substance use disorders come to work, they are 33% less productive and cost their employers $7,000 annually. We all have a stake in the health of our community and we can make a difference, together.
