The Compton city clerk’s office has confirmed that their office has received a notice of intent re: a marijuana referendum. [adsenseyu2]
This move comes on the heels of Greater Zion church pastor Michael Fisher and Compton residents protesting outside of a marijuana dispensary on Rosecrans Avenue.
The recently relected Mayor Aja Brown has publicly declared her support for a “secondary” marijuana market within city limits.
The Los Angeles Wave quoted Mayor Brown:
Mayor Aja Brown said that while she does not approve of the dispensaries in Compton, the city might need to back a “secondary market” that supports the industry in order to provide the funding necessary for the investigations to close the shops.
“Anytime there is a particular ban, there will be a black market that pops up,” she said. “We may need to consider allowing shops that sell the supplies for marijuana use or a delivery service to other cities that sell it in order to close the gap.”
The city clerk’s office must confer with City Attorney Craig Cornwell before confirming the notice of intents contents and most importantly, who the applicants are.
