Instead of worrying about pot dispensaries, perhaps there should be a limit as to how many helicopters can circle around for hours and hours. They burn endless fossil fuel and annoy the heck out of us who live one or two streets over.

Sad but good neighborhood is not imnuned to robbery. We are outnumbered by bad guys.

If you live one or two streets over, instead of worrying about helicopter noise, you should be more concerned that there is a gunman on the loose in the neighborhood. WHO CARES ABOUT THE HELICOPTERS??? Get your priorities straight lady!
