2 Opposing Cannabis Measures In Pomona Will Be Voted on November 3rd, 2020.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Since 2018 Pomona City staff, Council Members, and Pomona residents worked comprehensively to create the Pomona Commercial Cannabis Permit Program. The program included Pomona residents’ concerns, issues, and questions. The Permit Program is approved and backed by the Pomona City Council and used Pomona tax money to fund the project.

An opposing permit program, the Pomona Regulate Cannabis Act, was proposed in 2018 and approved by the City Council to go on a ballot measure for the 2020 election. Below is a guide to help you, the voter, understand what your vote means.

WHY DOES THIS MATTER?

Here at RAM, we believe that working together to educate people about the harms of youth marijuana use is extremely important. As a result, we are committed to helping LA County residents take action in their communities to minimize youth exposure to marijuana. Although we focus solely on youth marijuana use and do not support or oppose any specific legislation, we believe it is important that the community is educated on legislation that is being proposed within their communities.
