Cedar Beauregard 5 years, 3 months ago on City Council to take up medical marijuana's future in town

I wanted to share the note I sent City Council..

Hello City Council,

I just want to voice my concern with the extra 5% tax dollars funding teen programs.. This would be a joining at the hips of two very conflicting entities.. I'm thinking you might as well cast a bronze plaque with a pot leaf on it and attach it to the newly built teen center.. I don't think it sends a good message even if the money could be well used.

Please give it to substance abuse rehab of some kind.

I would also like the logical conflict of "sin" taxing a "medical treatment" be discussed.. Its either medicine or a recreational drug.. Call it what it is but sin taxing a medicine also sends a very mixed message..

Thanks for listening,

Cedar Beauregard

I'm sorry I keep commenting. I'm afraid you all are more vested in this than I am.

"Wow the planning commission sounds pretty corrupt !!!" How on earth would we benefit from this recommendation?? Corruption implies a monetary gain of some sort.

"Shame on the members of the commission who used their position to try to advance their personal agenda." What agenda.. You think we like being asked to talk about this?? Where put in a position to analyze the situation and voice our concerns and recommendations I don't have any agenda nor do the other commissioners.

I simply don't think the community needs to know there is a sale on hash and free joints on Wed.

Unfortunately for those of us asked to look at these regulations were stuck in a gray zone where there is no overlying Federal regulation to deal with these concerns as other drugs have. For example alcohol can not be given away at the liquor store. Should MJ be given away to bring in customers??

My thinking was that if we are allowing the distribution centers to exist in exchange they could keep the image of MMJ "Medical."

I'm still of the mindset that some of the adds advocate illegal recreational use of MJ. If nothing else my comments will make the pilots staff and the MMJ distributors consider the content before printing the add.

Remember all we did was voice a concern.. A concern I still have until the adds are cleaned up.
