    Tuesday Aug 16 | Mission Local

    After news earlier this month that 19 people were hospitalized after eating edible marijuana candies at a quinceaA era in the Mission District, we thought we'd ask candidates for District 9 to weigh in on medical cannabis and dispensaries in the neighborhood.

The people of The Mission have time and time again made it clear that they will support the raising of height limits if it results in a meaningful amount of truly affordable units.
