Glendora council may voice opposition to Prop. 19

A couple footnotes on tonight’s Glendora City Council meeting.

The council has on the agenda two items to either oppose/support two California propositions.

The most controversial of the two propositions in Prop. 19, the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010.

The dubi-ous law (see what I did there?) has been debated to the point where most people probably can’t make heads or tails of it. I think people were less paranoid about the Large Hadron Collider ending the world than Prop. 19.

City staff is asking council to to oppose Prop. 19 on the grounds that it is a public safety risk and the law itself is poorly constructed.

At the same time, the council (this comes as no surprise) is looking to support Prop. 22, The Local Taxpayer, Public Safety, and Transportation Protection Act. The proposition aims to stop state borrowing/taking from local city coffers.
