Thread: My City wants to Ban Marijuana Dispensaries

  1. #31
    It amazes me that these municipalities are so willing to cast off potential revenue, without having any idea of how much money that actually amounts to.

    They seem to think cities will get very little so it's not worth the risk. I think it's a combination of NIMBY and the fact Council tends to just do whatever city staff tells them to.

    The point I've been making is voters decided to regulate marijuana like alcohol. The city had 10 years to "opt-in" to allow medical marijuana facilities, but did nothing. So voters took up Prop 1 to allow it across the board, but now municipalities are just outright banning them. I think if they enact the ban it will go to a voter referendum--there is a lot of resident support to allow this including from entrepreneurs.

    Good News🙂

    Council is starting to pull back. Theyíre delaying the second reading after getting a ton of angry emails from residents. Iím not sure what will become of it, but so far itís a better result than the other communities who already opted out.
