Walnut Creek City Council To Discuss Marijuana Regulations On Tuesday

June 18, 2018 16:00 pm · 29 comments

The Walnut Creek City Council on June 19 will be presenting updated information regarding proposed marijuana regulations in the City.

The Council will consider regulation of personal cultivation of marijuana on residential property, and the prohibition of cannabis operations in the City with certain exceptions. The exceptions would allow for up to two medical cannabis delivery service businesses located in areas away from schools, youth centers and day care centers.

The Council will also consider the selection process for those businesses, and next steps, including implementing the regulations and determining associated fees.

WHEN & WHERE: Walnut Creek City Hall on Tuesday, June 19, at 6:00 p.m.

The stuff is still Federally Illegal. ANY support given by the City should result in the City losing ALL of its Federal Funding…. Not until the law is changed, should the City condone it.

Just more silly reefer madness nonsense. Californians legalized cannabis in 1996. Where is the federal crackdown youre referring to???

Schmee June 18, 2018 at 4:37 PM

Lol I can name 5 delivery services right now that already deliver to Walnut Creek. There are more people that smoke weed than abstain. We have you squares surrounded…

“There are more people that smoke weed than abstain”
That might be what weed smokers like to tell themselves, but definitely not true. I don’t know a single person that smokes weed.

If you meant there are more people that have tried it in their lifetime than have not, that is probably true. I never have…..

Schmee, your claim is based on the company you keep rather than reality.

phRay June 20, 2018 at 6:58 AM

64% of voters in Contra Costa County voted to legalize recreational cannabis, so your sample is obviously not representative.

Who’s paying taxes, not you potheads.

Pot tax June 19, 2018 at 5:23 AM

Yes, we are homeowners living next to you who pay taxes that voted for this law. Somehow Nevada and Colorado made 30 million in taxes last year from legal Cannabis and created thousands of jobs, so a lot of potheads must be paying their taxes.

Pyrrhus June 19, 2018 at 8:42 AM

Well, the pot smokers will be paying taxes on the pot they will be smoking. Also, they had to earn money somehow to pay for the pot so I’d assume the vast majority pay income tax.

Would you be asking the same question to people who drink alcohol or smoke tobacco?

Original G June 18, 2018 at 5:03 PM

Would not put it past them to establish a Pot park where people can sit and smoke a joint. All they would have to do is pay $5 per minute via a parking meter attached to the chair.

dumbing down of America– hey Mommie its legal – I will do it too
asking for trouble

anon June 18, 2018 at 5:25 PM

well said

Got news for you WC, it’s already being grown in your city in large quantities indoors and out.
WC city council discussing it won’t change a thing about where and how much is grown.

Potheads pay taxes like anyone else, but they sure aren’t gonna pay taxes on growing for personal use!

Federal law don’t mean crap!

States Rights!

Lol, ambition? What happens after you die?

Mika June 18, 2018 at 7:56 PM

You know all the old people against legalizing it partook back in the 60’s! And you’d be surprised to know how many of your neighbors cultivate and partake, all ages.

Patriot June 18, 2018 at 8:11 PM

There was a murder and an attempted murder in P Hill within the last month. Both pot related. Dead guy was doing “legit business “. (anecdotal I know) BUT, legalization in a vacuum is one thing. Legalization in the real world is quite another and it has resulted in an increase in violent crime. Ask any local cop. Ask Colorado. Knew this was coming. Told ya so.

Now, WC is going to choose winners and losers in business. They are going to control like a dictator. The last thing anyone should want is more government control over anything. What a joke.

G. June 20, 2018 at 8:56 AM

Bloodthirsty potheads around every corner!! What has this country come to Patriot??!!?

Badge1104 June 18, 2018 at 9:21 PM

what does it matter anyway Walnut Creek is headed down the skids soon too. crime is greatly increasing a long with the homeless in Street population. we used to love going to Walnut Creek but now we haven’t been there in a year

Mow mow paper June 18, 2018 at 9:42 PM

What is a homeless in Street population?

KinseyLeaky June 19, 2018 at 4:03 PM

@Badge
So where do you go now? Pittsburg, Antioch, stay in Concord area Park and Shop? Hahaha

Dr Jellyfinger June 18, 2018 at 9:58 PM

I am not in danger…. I AM the DANGER!

D.V.Guy June 19, 2018 at 7:49 AM

Who really cares! if they want $$$ the city will engage, if not…..eh.
IT’S OVER! the political handwringing can now cease, play or don’t.
I was waiting to see what kind of high-end boutique the city could muster but understand it would undermine the alcohol-fueled fun the city is known for……

Dopedup June 19, 2018 at 10:13 PM

Like wow man. How cool. Let’s get stoned man. Like higher than high man. Dont know what the problem is man. Cool man. I’m so high man.

KAD June 19, 2018 at 10:36 PM

WC City Council voted to allow growing up to 6 plants outside if you are in a single family home.

phRay June 20, 2018 at 7:00 AM

State law says they can’t restrict it to less than this.

Vandy June 20, 2018 at 11:45 AM

I am in support of recreational dispensaries in Contra Costa County. Its safe, fun, and legal. Lets try to tone down the reefer madness. Kids might be reading and get curious what is the big deal. Its better to just move on and leave this for the victorious 21+ recreational users.

mike June 20, 2018 at 3:29 PM

ban all alcohol it brings crime to WC

Citizen June 20, 2018 at 10:44 PM

I am fine with pot! I do not indulge! It is good for sick people and for seniors with no appetite! Personally, I want to try edibles and I also want to have one plant just for fun! I live in a large retirement community where people do pot! Oh well folks get over it! WC will have it here and that is that!
