Argumento A FAVOR

Measure G came to fruition the Pacifica way: through numerous public meetings, input from a wide variety of interested persons and thorough review by everyone involved. The result is a recreational and medical marijuana measure that meets the wishes of our residents, is fiscally responsible and prioritizes public safety. We strongly recommend your vote for Measure G.

When the question of whether to allow the recreational use of marijuana was put before California voters in the form of Proposition 64 last November, a resounding 67.4% of Pacifica residents said yes. That was a rate more than 10% greater than the approval vote statewide. It was therefore incumbent upon us to determine the most appropriate way to implement the wishes of the majority of those we represent.

The approval of Measure G will allow for the levy of a reasonable tax on recreational and medical cannabis businesses operating within Pacifica. Those funds will be used to significantly offset the ever increasing cost of providing local government services, programs, and activities. In addition, Measure G will activate local rules to ensure that these businesses operate within acceptable parameters in the community.

The number of businesses will be limited to a total of six within designated commercial areas, with no more than two businesses within a single area. No retail operations can occur within 600 feet of a school or 200 feet of a day care center. Furthermore, all prospective operators must be screened by the Police Department to ensure the businesses run safely and do not detract from public health. Each operator will be subject to a criminal background check, the employees must undergo a local background review, and each site must have an approved security plan.

Vote for a responsible cannabis sales program. Again, please vote for Measure G.
