Years of lawsuits and turmoil. This ballot measure is in direct conflict to the Redondo’s own locally crafted law. The two would be at odds with each other. The City has the right to be able to put the current law before to voters to vote on. This would be the easiest way to fix the mess in case Measure E passes. Even then, months of time and hundreds of thousands of dollars would be spent.
Does the City have it’s own retail cannabis law?admin2022-09-20T07:00:25-07:00
NO! Measure E was written by special interests who have crafted this initiative so that if passed, they would win a cannabis license. This entire initiative is about allowing this group to win a license, no one else.
Measure E takes strips away local control. We lose all ability to change anything in our local ordinances. The special interest wins with an arcane process of selecting cannabis retailers.
Top reasons to vote NO on Measure E
Redondo Beach Residents want to keep our local control, not allow our laws to be unfairly dictated by the corporate interests of a single cannabis retailer, Catalyst Cannabis, Measure E’s sponsor. VOTE NO ON MEASURE E!
Measure E would replace our own up-to-date, carefully crafted, and well-balanced retail cannabis ordinances. If passed, Measure E immediately eliminates the potential $1,000,000 to $2,000,000 annual Redondo Beach revenue.
Measure E increases the number of cannabis retailers permitted, allows them closer to our secondary schools, and concentrated in your neighborhood. Measure E creates unfair cannabis retailer selection processes biased toward Catalyst Cannabis and intentionally limits the local authority of our City Council and City Manager.
Measure E creates conflicts with our current municipal code that expose our city to expensive lawsuits. Measure E cannot be corrected or improved without another vote of residents in another expensive ballot measure.
NO on E honors the will of our voters regarding cannabis retailers in our city, avoids an unfair monopoly by one company, and preserves local control.
NO on E empowers Redondo Beach leadership and management to maintain and improve fair, unbiased practices that maximize equity and balance.
NO on E protects our own ability to regulate, improve, and enforce safe practices. Don’t sell out our city revenue for a pittance in ministerial fees. Don’t give away the funds needed for assuring safe cannabis retailer operations and education on drug use and effects, especially for our youth.
NO on E:
-Preserves our local control and city revenue
-Stops unfair competition and monopoly
-Prevents multiple retailers in your neighborhood
-Ensures better supervision and regulation
-Maintains equal opportunity permit process for any legitimate retailer rather than favoring one company.
We can do better than allowing a Long Beach cannabis company to dictate how we run our city. Keep our local control!
