WHAT SHOULD WE DO ABOUT LEGAL CANNABIS IN OUR GREAT CITY?

THIS WILL BE YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR & BE HEARD!

This meeting will provide an opportunity for attendees to provide feedback and ask questions on key issue areas of the medicinal and commercial marijuana industry.

Representatives from a number of City departments, local churches, industry businesses, and community members will be available to discuss the marijuana industry as it relates to Compton’s current approach and community desires, health and human services, taxation and revenue, economic development, and enforcement.

We all know the opportunities:

PATIENTS

Cannabis can be an effective medicine and safe consumer good if applied responsibly.

SOCIAL JUSTICE

No one should be imprisoned for non-violent cannabis offenses and we should make sure people of color with non-violent cannabis offenses have fair access to the cannabis industry.

MONEY FOR SCHOOLS, PUBLIC HEALTH & EDUCATION

Tax dollars from legal cannabis businesses can fund much-needed social programs that help build-up our community neighborhoods.

WE ALL KNOW THE PROBLEMS:

The way things are here, legal access to cannabis just helps the underground weed black market economy.

The money made by these operations won't be made by the people that live here, stay here, and help here. Like the liquor stores and gas stations, the owners live somewhere that is not here.

Keep weed out of our schools and away from our children.

Blacks are 4 times more likely to be arrested for possession of weed.

Violent crime is bad enough now. Won't it just get worse?

We can't close the illegal shops operating in the city. How can we expect our city to control legal ones?

The people who want us to accept weed keep trying to tell us about how much we can do with the tax dollars it will generate. We all know that "not all money is GOOD money."
