Only 24 of California’s 58 counties choose to allow commercial marijuana, the majority of counties are opting out. Santa Barbara County supervisors made the choice to allow for cannabis operations.
Das Williams, first district supervisor, is being influenced by marijuana growers. Many growers are from out of town and are taking advantage of lax zoning regulations. Thin-skinned Williams continues to dismiss our concerns as he lashes out at constituents. The skunk smell, crime, health issues and embarrassment our town suffers is real. Most of us are lifelong residents who love our beach town and choose to live here not for political gain or to grow marijuana, but for our beaches, mountains and overall quality of life. It’s a great place to raise a family.
It is time for an anti-cannabis candidate to run against Williams in our next election cycle. First District residents must take back our communities, our quality of life, our health and our dignity.
