“Oh, it’s just weed.” I’ve heard this statement so many times. It seems like marijuana has become so common these days. Everywhere you look there are billboards and dispensaries on almost every corner. But what most people don’t realize is that today’s marijuana is not the same as your mama’s weed.
On October 3, 2020, a shooting took place at East Market Sharq. Three community members were injured and one has died. The shooter took his own life.
