Jenny Hale: What you don’t know about Measure W

To all of you who oppose cannabis, I ask, what is it that you are so afraid of? Let’s turn from the rhetoric and make an educated choice. Good sources of information include The Union, YubaNet “M” files, and

Nevada County will continue to grapple with this issue. We need an ordinance that allows for flexibility. Measure W shuts the door on future input, and will be very costly for taxpayers to amend.

Measure W allows supervisors to amend the ordinance without a vote of the people. The Voter Information Pamphlet, page 18, states, “Measure W also contains a new provision (‘Section III’) which would allow the Board of Supervisors to adopt any additional ordinances, resolutions or other regulations necessary to reasonably interpret and clarify the ordinance, without a vote of the people, so long as the Board’s interpretation or clarification is consistent with the language and original intent of the voter-approved ordinance.”

The ban is currently in place. Let’s take time to craft legislation that will protect our environment and safety, while preserving our individual freedom and access to medicine we can grow in our own gardens.
