Long Beach voters may have several choices on marijuana in November
Long Beach voters may be faced with a choice between two competing medical marijuana ballot measures this November.
There’s also the possibility of a statewide ballot initiative that may legalize recreational use of the cannabis across the Golden State, but that’s another story.
In Long Beach, supporters backing a medical marijuana initiative that would allow dispensaries to legally return to the city have gathered enough signatures to potentially qualify the measure for November’s ballot, the city clerk announced Friday. The signatures still must be verified, however.
Also on Friday, Councilwoman Suzie Price announced that she and two other council members will ask their colleagues on the City Council on Tuesday to consider writing an alternative ballot measure that would allow four medical marijuana delivery services to legally operate in Long Beach.
The alternative proposal holds out the possibility that storefront dispensaries may eventually be allowed in Long Beach, she said.
“We’re trying to clarify, it’s a phased-in, deliberate approach. It’s not a delivery-only model,” Price said.
