This is what happens when you elect religious fruitcakes to public office.

It is interesting that those against medical cannabis are suffering the most paranoia. That was a bit of legalization humor.

Change is hard. I know this.

Medical cannabis people are people. We need to show compassion like Jesus would and allow access to medical Cannabis in California in my opinion.

Who are you kidding? There are Dr.'s out there who will write prescriptions to just about anyone. What we don't need is to have marijuana more readily accesible to the youth in our commuity. The pot use in our local high schools is out of control. If these kids can outsmart our local police and school adminstrators, they certainly can figure out a way to purchase their medical marijuana (possibly with the help of an adult). It is a proven fact, marijuana is harmful to our youth and their developing brains. Why bring this element into our community and heighten the risk?

Just another brain dead decision by the Danville Town Council. It will never change if you keep electing weak minded automaton's.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving...I'm sure the folks suffering from cancer treatments and needed a quick joint didn't have a pleasant Thanksgiving.

I'm not surprised with the lack of vision the Danville council expressed...visionary's are something in the past. The only time a person with a vision is successful is when he/she acts separately. If any of you have ever been a juror, you know what I'm saying. Sheep are a dime a dozen..it's the visionary that changes things, but it's also the visionary that gets all the crap thrown at him/her.

Oh well, that's life in Danville and sadly speaking, most everywhere else.

Have a wonderful black Friday...I mean GREEN (as in $$$$)Friday

The real scourge upon our community is allowing more boutique stores.
Think of all those, esp. in this season, suffering from compulsive shopping and overspending.
A year moratorium would go a long way to helping these people get through their crisis time.
Isn't this what good government is all about??

Need to hear from those that really do need these dispensaries. I have no idea of what you're going through. Lot of us don't know your pain. How does this help you? I'm not against it or for it yet. I've heard why not to have it......but really if it makes a big difference for you then I'm for it. BTW, how do we keep it from those who do not have a need for it?

Hmmm, a ban on a drug outlet supported by Federal Law. How strange the liberals are to not support the Council. Seems like everything that is good and decent, the liberals want to tear it down. Could they ever consider that a illegal drug outlet sends the wrong message to children ?
