Compton Unified School District (CUSD) has sued the City of Compton in an attempt to force them to enforce the municipal code, that regulates businesses. Particularly, marijuana dispensaries. After sending notice to the city and with no apparent response, after giving them less than a week to respond, CUSD moved forward with litigation.
“The health, safety and welfare of Compton schoolchildren is critical to the mission of the Compton School District,” Micah Ali, Compton board president, said in a statement.
“We are working to get our students college- and career-ready and these dispensaries impede that progress.”
2 Urban Girls shares the frustration of Compton Unified officials, for whenever we send requests for information, to the city, we either get a response to “verify” our email or a reply of “it will take 6-8 weeks to respond”. At least they don’t discriminate on who they respond to, in spite of now having a communications professional on staff.

CUSD Board Trustee Micah Ali appeared on the Randy Economy Radio Show on 870 AM radio and shared the trustees voted unanimously to sue the district for failure to enforce the municipal code. When Ali was asked by 2 Urban Girls about his endorsing one of the council members his district voted to sue, he had no comment. He did reiterate he is running for re-election to the school board this Fall.
