I agree with Mayor Janney and oppose pot shops in IB. If the ordinance passes, IB will become a pot sanctuary city, not good for its image, residents, or businesses. Prospective and current pot shop owners have put $50,000 dollars to try to get enough votes to pass this illegal ordinance. IB is fighting for its life against the financial strengths of the pro-pot lobby and their pot shop owners. Pot shops facility abuse and access to fraudulent “medical” use of pot, this is harmful and not safe.
Let’s listen to community members and not pro-pot lobbyists and prospective pot shop owners who look to make a profit off our healthy young people. Proposition 215 and SB 420 don’t mention marijuana dispensary storefronts and the State Attorney General marijuana guidelines on this issue states, “Although marijuana dispensaries have been operating in California for years, dispensaries, as such, are notrecognized under the law.” Nowhere in California’s laws or the State Attorney General’s marijuana guidelines does it allow marijuana to be sold. California laws allow for caregivers and their marijuana users to gather collectively to operate in a closed circuit network, but not for profit as a commercial enterprise. Nobody is getting in the way of this true relationship.
It’s also important to refute the need of illegal pot shops, because there are hundreds of delivery services found online fighting for business that will delivery 24/7 to your door. There is no need for pot shops, but shop owners will falsely claim their operations are legal and needed, just so they can make a profit in IB.
Let’s vote no against pot shops this November.
