My wife and I have visited our son in Quincy over the last eight years. With each visit, we enjoyed the community and recreational activities that were available. We particularly enjoyed the fishing and boating on the lakes.
Last year, we decided to move to Quincy and enjoy all that Plumas County had to offer. From the first day, we have not been disappointed. We have met many people from our church, local businesses, and strangers who have been kind and helpful during that time. To us, every day has been a blessing.
Measure B could change everything.
Measure B is a proposition on the November ballot that could change everything. It’s an initiative for the MAUCO (Medicinal and Adult Use of Cannabis Ordinance). Its supporters say it will be good for Plumas County.
Passage of Proposition 64 in November, 2016, gave California citizens, 21 years of age and older, the right to legally grow, possess and use cannabis for recreational purposes, with certain restrictions. So why is Measure B going before the voters of Plumas County?
Measure B would allow on-site cannabis consumption at public events at locations in Plumas. It would also allow commercial operations to be located close to your child’s K-12 school or preschool with only a 600-foot or 1,000-foot buffer.
Measure B would also provide local commercial cannabis growers exemptions from meeting CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act) requirements. As taxpayers, we’ll be on the hook for any environmental clean-ups due to careless growers.
Measure B is not the change we need.
I, for one, am not interested is seeing life in Plumas County change as it has in Colorado. We can help make sure Plumas County continues to be a place where children can grow up in a clean environment.
To do so, we must keep commercial cannabis out of Plumas County by voting NO on Measure B.
