Transparency - Where I stand on Marijuana
Ever since Proposition 64 was passed I have watched our city council struggle with the Marijuana issue. When they finally did make a decision based upon the results in towns that allow the sale of recreational marijuana I believe Villagrana, Edwards, Martinez and Piltingsrud, the NO votes made a $1,000,000.00 mistake. I would like to remedy that. I am in favor of allowing up to three State Regulated Cannabis stores to operate in Florence. That is simply a business decision. The City of Manitou Springs, population 5000 plus brings in $100,000.00 per month in sales tax from one store, there has been no increase in crime, and business is booming.
