If the state is going to loose that much money they will just have to tax the hell out of the sales. It is b.s. to say that stores can plead the 5th on there profits because it will turn what was once a medical collective into a store for anyone over the age of 21.

The law will give local government the right to collect taxes, and issue permits for it to be sold so they can issue a permit to any store not just collective style stores.

With the limited growing space allowed of a 25 sq.ft. or 5' by 5' square I'm sure the federal government will still fund to keep the cartels out of the forest. What It will help is if they do grow it here nobody here is going to buy it.

It's funny how they all are more worried about not getting ''free'' money from the feds than they are lowering the crime rate from petty stupid bs mj charges.
As far as driving or in the workplace, it's not going to change a thing,anyone can get a note from the doctor to use,It's not that big of a deal.
Sure smells like election season. The city managers are sure out to get the votes of those little old ladies playing bingo every weekend.

Guess what Red Bluff,come Nov it's going to pass, so why don't you stop sucking up to the status quo, We (the people) would like to applaud a whistle and welcome you to the twenty-first century!

I should elaborate that collectives claim non-profit where a store can't so a store can't hide their profits.

This article should have been in the "editorial section" since it clearly was not written from an unbiased point of view.

Is the Red Bluff Daily News owned by Fox News?

In a letter to the council, which was read aloud by Mayor Jeff Moyer, Byrne writes, This is a bald-faced attempt to stage an event to distract the council from the things they should be addressing

I think Byrne is right on with his viewpoint!

So they had a meeting saying they dont like this Proposition and dont support it.
So if it passes what are they going to do? Thats what I am wondering? They didnt say. I dont really see their is anything they can do from a legal standpoint.
Half of the things this officer claimed would happen is purely projection. He doesnt know that Workman compensation will increase or that under the influence driving will increase.
If you want to educate yourself, you dont go to a meeting where people say things that have no proof behind them. Just because some guy said it, doesnt mean its reality. I think thats something the council should realize. Pick up a book sometime or check it out on the internet from a reliable website. Research it yourself. I dont see why they needed to have this forum for "education" they dont have a meeting about all the other propositions coming up to educate the public...

Smoke and mirrors and low quality at that.

To a non-pot smoker, how does passing of Prop 19 benefit you?
1. If you are a non-pot smoker, you won't go to jail. So passing Prop 19 will do nothing for you.
2. If the pot cartels are killing each other, as a non-pot smoker, that does NOT really affect you. So passing Prop 19 will do nothing for you.
3. If the government is spending money to stop drugs, etc., this is essentially the same as the US military preserving the freedom of non pot-smokers to have a good quality of life away from pot dealers and pot smokers, etc. So the way it is now is really good.

If Prop 19 is passed, now as a non-pot smoker, you need to deal with the following:
1. The smell of pot smoke from a neighbors house and pot cultivation.
2. The blight that cultivation of marijuana in yards will do to the community.
3. Seeing potheads with bloodshot eyes and smelling skunky pot.
4. If you have children, now they also see these marijuana plantations around them and they might have friends with families that are pot smokers.
5. Seeing psychotic pot abusers walking on the streets.

Mexico which would most likely legalize export of pot to the USA because they are NOT dumb, will be the suppliers for US dispensaries and pot shops. So they will have the jobs and the money. And America will get what they want, the freedom to get stoned.

So as a non-pot smoker, what will Prop 19 do for you that will improve your life? NONE. really.

All Mexico has to do is LEGALIZE farming and export of marijuana to the USA. Mexico can do this TODAY! Then they can be the LEGAL pot suppliers for the US dispensaries and pot shops. Mexico does not have to legalize pot use in their country. All they are doing is getting into the GOLD RUSH and trying to get US money into their country, giving jobs to their people and taking advantage of the America's dependency on POT. There is money to be made by Mexico legally. Why not do it NOW??? America is not the only one that can legalize pot and get away with it. Mexico should legalize the export of marijuana to the USA. Again, it will be good for their country money-wise to take advantage of the US dependency on POT. Do it now and no arguing.

Let's see now, Red Bluff PD just lost 4 or 5 officers to better paying jobs in other cities, tax revenue from RB Ford, Helser and Red Bluff Dodge and many other smaller businesses folding up causing even less revenue for the city and now they want to give up the opportunity to collect sales tax on pot if passed in Nov?

Can you say Red Bluff is truly becoming 'Dead Bluff'?

Considering the ENTIRE USA will not be legalizing marijuana for recreational use, this point you are trying to make seems a little far reaching.

An entire country isnt going to legalize marijuana so they can export to California, the lone marijuana state. We dont need their brick weed, we grow green up here. Just so you know.

If the grammar errors in your letter are any indicator of how pot heads use their collective gray matter, the state of California (and its residents) are doomed if this measure indeed passes come November.

I am very proud of Meyor Jeff Moyer and Councilmen Jim Byrne for having a clear vision and insight into the illegal and unethical activities of City Manager Marty Nichols...and yes this is a tactic of avoidism by governemnt official. Give the fickle public another problem to ponder politically and hopefully, everyone will forget we have a bigger problem they're trying to sweep under the rug.

Everyone knew how they would vote. Did we really need to spend more money on a meeting that everyone knew how the council was going to vote for in the first place, no matter what the public says. That is what they do. Have public meetings, ignore the imput and vote how they want any way.

Any way thumbs up to Moyer and Byrne for doing and saying the right thing about the firing of the finance director and that the meeting was a diversionary tactic to take the focus off of what the CM did and back on pot.
