I’m writing in support of the Wellness Connection dispensaries.

I have been a patient of the Hallowell dispensary for more than a year. I have had no medical issues from its use of pesticides; my marijuana is pest-free and without mold.

The pesticides used were either natural substances or synthetic versions of natural substances, according to both Wellness Connection and an state investigation.

One person at the rally on April 4 protesting pesticide use said he’s had throat and chest discomfort.

I have experienced no such discomfort.

I wonder how many of the participants at the rally smoke cigarettes, with all their additives and chemicals.

The state put limitations on pesticide use without knowing the good or bad effects.

I congratulate Wellness Connections for using “natural” pesticides to ensure I get pest- and mold-free medication.
