Maybe a good starting place would be for the SRPD to patrol around Mudd's. Everyone knows that's where the kids hang out to get high and make drug deals. It's within walking distance of the PD and yet all the kids claim the PD never bother to patrol that area.

The hypocrisy of your right wing mentality. It's ok to have booze fueled events and the PD arresting drunk drivers but to allow medical patients to grow or obtain their medicine in "your" city raises the "war on drugs" mentality of the past. The people of California have spoken and yet your little minds are stuck in prohibition.

It is not about right or left, but about documented research on what happens to a community that gets on the slippery slope of drug use.I do not support legalizing drugs or mandating restroom use. the liberal media has done enough damage already to this country. Do we want to end up like many of the losers on the international stage? It all begins with just one little step - legalizing drugs.

According to Web Link

San Ramon and Danville voted identically, 56% to 44% in favor of Prop 64's recreational use.

The councils might be mistaking the will of the voters.

Where are the double blind studies substantiating that marijuana is indeed a "medicine"? Everyone knows that you can go to any number of quack doctors & invent a condition & the quack will write you a prescription for weed.

Dear Resident,

There aren't many because of the chicken and egg problem that studies are nearly impossible to run because of the Schedule I restrictions. The same is true of studies with MDMA or LSD, both of which have shown promise treating various psychological problems (PTSD, Alcoholism), but have run afoul of the public moral police.
