We of the Cannabis Citizens Group do not oppose medical or recreational use of marijuana. We oppose commercial cannabis activity in Plumas County.
The Medicinal and Adult Use of Marijuana Ordinance (MAUCO), written and supported by proponents of commercial cannabis activity in Plumas County, will appear as Measure B on the November 2018 election ballot. Thank you Board of Supervisors for requesting a report from the county department heads as to the fiscal impact Measure B would have on our county.
Regarding the General Fund, reports from the county auditor-controller and the treasurer-tax collector indicate that the revenue generated from Measure B’s proposed General Tax (two percent of cannabis businesses’ net income) may not cover county costs to regulate the proposed ordinance.
Measure B backers keep telling us that millions of dollars will flow into the county coffers as a result of the passage of this ordinance. According to proponents, everything will be just great—no increased crime and no increased costs to the county.
Not sure what to think about Measure B’s revenue claims?
Follow the money—not the money flowing into the county, but the money that would be packed into the pocketbooks of local commercial growers and cannabis business owners.
I urge you to stand with us against Measure B by clicking Team and having your name added as a supporter.
