Ronda Marcie is a valley paralegal who is a member of the Hemp Industries Association. Marcie spoke up at a public forum in Palmer this month in favor of a resolution sponsored by Assemblyman Jim Sykes that would create a Borough marijuana advisory committee

“Any time the government asks for comments from people before they move and act on things is a better situation than insisting people do things when they don’t really understand why.”

The committee would consist of seventeen members, drawn from various community sectors: health, law enforcement, education, business and the like. Three seats are open for citizens at large.

Committee members would be appointed by the Borough mayor, with approval by the Borough Assembly.
