Prop T Ballot Argument

In 1996, backed by scientific evidence and compassion, the voters of California chose to allow people suffering from cancer, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, and other debilitating diseases to use medical marijuana. While local governments have failed to enact ordinances to allow for a safe, well-regulated distribution of the medicine, drug cartels are profiting from patients and bringing dangerous hard drugs to our communities. 

Proposition T  would establish clear rules and regulations for medical marijuana dispensaries in the city of Lemon Grove, taking the rug out from under the black market drug dealers. It takes a balanced approach to the concerns of our communities by placing a buffer from places where children congregate and has strict requirements for security, hours of operation, and location of dispensaries.  

Proposition T requires large buffers between dispensaries, to ensure that patients have access while preventing a concentration of dispensaries in any area. 

Cost recovery fees are included, to recoup any costs to the city. 

Proposition T is win-win. We make sure our children don't have access to medical marijuana, we ensure patients have safe reliable access to their medicine, and we stand up to the drug dealers. Join us by voting yes on Proposition T.
