On Tuesday evening, (May 30), the Board of Supervisors held a study session on the topic of cannabis; the place was packed, there were several presentations by the sheriff and code enforcement, and county counsel presented a potential draft of the ban ordinance that some of our supervisors have ordered. Many people got up to speak their views on the topic (a creative young woman even sang her comments!), and the meeting went late into the night.

A recurring question to Supervisor Mills – and to the rest of the board – was: How will you pay for this ban you are so vigorously promoting? The supervisors remained silent, although Supervisor Mills did say it would not be paid for by raising taxes. As citizens, we are entitled to this information and it should be clear and detailed. What is this charade about?
