Teton County Library draws fire for book on pot-growing

An Anonymous Patron writes “A short One From Wyoming says The county library is being criticized for carrying a how-to book on growing marijuana.

“I do not understand why, when so much of our county resources are devoted to dealing with the problem of substance abuse, you have chosen to spend tax dollars to purchase a how-to crime manual,” Robert Gathercole said of the “Marijuana Grower’s Handbook” in an e-mail to library Director Betsy Bernfield and the Teton County Commission.

He demanded an explanation and wondered if the library would also carry books on bomb-making, assassination, how to make methamphetamine and child pornography.

Bernfield said she will put the book on hold once the current borrower returns it.”
