Chula Vista — Public Safety Subcommittee To Discuss Medical Marijuana Dispensaries
On Wednesday, May 18, 2011, the City of Chula Vista’s Public Safety Subcommittee will be meeting to discuss “Medical Marijuana Dispensaries” and crafting their recommendations to the Chula Vista City Council. The City currently has a moratorium on dispensaries which is due to expire on June 21st of this year. At the Wednesday meeting, the subcommittee will hear reports from the City Attorney, Police Department, and the City’s Planning department. No medical marijuana patients or patient’s rights advocacy groups are officially scheduled to present.
In order to prevent the City from enacting an outright ban, it is critical that everyone who cares about this issue come out on Wednesday at 6pm to the meeting and help present a patient perspective as well as the benefits well organized dispensaries bring to the patient community as well as the surrounding neighborhood. Mark your calendars for Wednesday and take the time to attend the meeting and express your views on this issue. The prohibitionists are planning on coming out in full force and we need your help to balance the one sided view that the committee will be hearing.
