Fellow Plumas residents:
Our opponents are crying propaganda and disinformation. If information is misrepresented here or on our Facebook page, it’s done so inadvertently and is corrected or removed. The reality is that legal cannabis in California is brand new and we’re all scrambling to understand its rules and facts. When trying to present information about new laws and regulations, mistakes will happen.
Here are some questions to ponder: Do their sales pitches at petition signing events ignore commercial cannabis’ negative consequences? Do they cherry-pick information to bolster their arguments for it? If past behavior is any indication, the answers are a resounding YES.
We’ve been dealing with this issue for months and are trying to catch up. They have been plugging away for years. Profit motivates them. Preservation of our county motivates us.
For those of you who haven’t yet made up their minds about our commercial cannabis issue, some questions for you:
Do you trust those who are motivated by making money from the Green Rush? Who’s more likely to deploy disinformation—those who for years have broken laws and now brazenly promise to ignore our county’s moratorium in order to enrich themselves or those who simply want to preserve a commercial cannabis-free county?
Propaganda is willful misrepresentation and has no place on this page. Those who cry propaganda here would better serve their cause by attacking our posts with facts, real information, respectful discourse and compelling persuasion rather than with ad hominem (non) arguments and repetitive charges of propaganda.
Their ballot initiative could win in November. If it does, we all lose—even those who are willing to pursue self-interest at the expense of the good of Plumas County.
If you agree with this post, please support keeping commercial cannabis out of Plumas. Encourage fellow Plumas residents to add their names to our supporter list. Thank you.
