Allen Wayne Warren was elected to represent Council District 2 in the City of Sacramento on November 6th and sworn in on December 11th of 2012.
Regarding Medical Marijuana Ordinance
Over the past few months, my office has received an unprecedented number of calls inquiring about opportunities to cultivate marijuana in my council district. First, let me be clear and express my support for medical marijuana and its recreational use by responsible adults, should voters legalize it in the coming weeks. But my support for marijuana and its emerging industry must be met with caution and a sense of responsibility to our residents. We must continue to have an open dialog that addresses legitimate concerns and we must come up with reasonable solutions.On November 15th, the City Council is scheduled to vote on a proposed ordinance to legalize marijuana cultivation. Given the sensitive nature of this proposed ordinance, and the known and unknown impacts it may have, I feel it’s necessary to lay out some of my positions publicly. As such, I propose the following:
I believe that by adopting these initial principals, it gives us an opportunity to take a more measured approach in understanding this new industry. Marijuana cultivation already exist in our city. Our challenge should be to find harmony as best we can amongst all our residents and operators. My objective is to embrace these new opportunities but also to take the time necessary to ensure that we are creating the best environment for long-term success.
