A group of Carpinteria residents, now called “Concerned Carpinterians,” have organized by word-of-mouth and via the neighborhood-based social media platform Nextdoor to “protect our quality of life in Carpinteria and the Carpinteria Valley as impacted by commercial cannabis.” The group describes itself as “a grassroots citizens group” and has voiced concern for “negative impacts of commercial cannabis” including “odor/air quality issues,” “falling property values,” “health, safety and crime” and “traffic and parking congestion.” For more information, contact concernedcarpinterians@gmail.com.
