Last night the Planning Commission approved onsite use of cannabis. That makes cannabis just like a bar!
Where are the bars?
Users will flock downtown to smoke weed inside even though cigarettes have been banned for years. Maybe some snack shops will open to satisfy the munchies of the participants.
Jenn Carrillo pushed this idea because renters may not be able to smoke in their apartments. Cigarettes have been illegal inside for years Jenn, why is weed different? Both will be legal substances. How many other legal substances need special considerations. Mercedes is a legal vehicle, shouldn’t everybody who can’t afford one get reparations?
The local minority community thinks all the tax revenue should go to them as reparations. Downtown will be a pot destination, those luxury condos in the old State Farm building will turn into subsidized housing for the pot people.
At least the rest of the City won’t have to worry about “high” drivers.
Want to know why there are no successful inner cities run by Democrats?
Pot tourism pretty much sums up their mentality.
Guess who appointed every member of the Planning Commission – his own “right fit”?
