Letter To The Editor: Spying On Your Neighbors? Shame! Shame!

By DAREN SAVAGE
Los Alamos

This letter is in response to Mike Dempsey’s letter dated Dec. 11, 2021, “Private Home Weed Sales In Los Alamos An Insane Recipe For Disaster” (link). 

Mr. Dempsey mentions all retail cannabis locations in Colorado must have a Sally Port. Most do, but not all because it’s not a legal requirement in Colorado. Sally Ports typically don’t have X-Ray capabilities to see if one has a pistol shoved down one’s pants, nor can they detect one’s intent to rob. I’ve never seen a bank with double steel doors and a guard to judge their customers’ intentions, so I’m not sure what Mr. Dempsey’s referring to.

San Francisco is a poor example of the dangers of operating a cannabis retail outlet. These days, any retail outlet in San Francisco is likely to get robbed as we’ve seen with the recent robberies of high-end retailers in Union Square.

In fact, all retailers are seeing a dramatic increase in theft. Recently, the CEOs of The Home Depot, Target, Best Buy, Nordstrom, DICK’S Sporting Goods, Dollar General Corporation, CVS Health, and Ulta Beauty asked Congress for relief from the large numbers of “smash and grab” robberies they’ve had recently.

I’m sure Mr. Dempsey is aware that smoking and driving is as illegal as drinking and driving. I’m not sure if he’s aware that like a liquor store, it’s illegal to consume cannabis inside the retail outlet one purchased it from.

I took Mr. Dempsey’s advice and searched for “marijuana dispensary robberies”. Even Colorado dispensaries with their vaunted Sally Ports aren’t safe from robberies. “‘It’s not worth it’: Denver-area dispensaries on alert after string of armed robberies” (link).

A cannabis dispensary is a high-risk, low-reward business to rob. Like a 7-11 convenience store, they don’t keep large amounts of cash or product on hand. Using a gun to rob a cannabis dispensary is a felony; usually with lots of witnesses, security cameras, and one or two armed security employees. Security employees don’t just get a good look at every customer, they inspect their driver’s licenses (must be valid) and sometimes scan them.

Rob the dispensary after-hours? Everything but small display items are locked up so the pay-off is pretty small. Go in with a gang? Divide your already small take by 2-4-6-8 … You get the idea. “Why Robbing a Cannabis Dispensary is Unwise” (link).

I agree with Mr. Dempsey that cannabis dispensaries in residential areas aren’t a good idea; we should be good neighbors. A cannabis dispensary will generate a lot of traffic that one’s neighbors didn’t sign up for when they moved in.

I’ll close by saying Mr. Dempsey should be ashamed of himself for offering to spy on, film, and publish our local citizens engaging in legal business transactions for his personal glee. What’s next; a camera-laden RV outside of LA Liquor to catch those nasty people buying alcohol?
