Jo Ann Rebane: Marijuana: about ‘getting the money’

Nevada City’s rush to provide a temporary authorization enabling legal adult-use marijuana sales in the future is misguided.

Seems like the Council’s implied promise to stick with medical marijuana only, to go slow, to evaluate those effects, and to deal with the city’s ongoing inability to enforce compliance with the current marijuana ordinance has fallen in favor of “getting the money” from a cannabis tax.

Is this fair city about to give up on creating a healthy environment for business and raising families, and choosing instead a new unhealthy character that will swamp the historical charm of the town?
