Thought Big Tobacco was bad? Try Big Cannabis.
WE STAND TOGETHER
The SLO County Cannabis Neighborhood Watch Group is a non-partisan affiliation of concerned SLO county citizens from all walks of life, all socio-economic backgrounds, different political parties and many different professions.
Our families and community deserve better..... it's that simple.
Advocate for changes to SLO County Cannabis Ordinances to protect and preserve family-oriented neighborhoods from invasive, undesirable cannabis cultivation, manufacturing, processing, dispensary and transportation operations.
Establish a transparent and ethical process by which county regulations are created and maintained, and by which approvals are granted to any cannabis permit applications.
CANNABIS RIGHTS SUPPORTERS CAN SUPPORT US TOO!
We respect that some people support pot legalization (as do some in our group), but that they can still stand with us in keeping the cannabis supply chain far away from our families, neighborhoods and larger community. We have ZERO intention of overturning Proposition 64 or curbing individual decisions to use marijuana. This concerns localization NOT legalization.
SLO COUNTY BOWED TO THE INDUSTRIAL CANNABIS LOBBY
We observe that Proposition 64 did NOT compel counties or cities to allow any pot production and distribution in the community. Most counties in California prohibited cannabis production; shamefully, San Luis Obispo county did not.
LOCAL MEDIA IS PART OF THE PROBLEM
Cannabis promoters and traffickers are making large inroads into SLO County, and much of the influenced planning for this has happened quietly behind closed doors. There is a significant pro-pot industry bias in many of our local media outlets, too. It is wholly irresponsible that the cannabis influencers and county have not been called out on such a serious matter.
