Dawn Darington would like to see her thriving medical marijuana dispensary business shuttered.

“Please put me out of business,” Darington, sporting a black shirt with “marijuana is safer than alcohol” emblazoned on it, told Sen. Ann Rivers, R-La Center, on Friday afternoon.

Rivers plans to do just that.

“There are legitimate uses of medical marijuana,” Rivers said. “I want to make sure only true patients are using it, that it’s the highest quality, and that it stays out of the hands of children.”
