News Alert!!: Needles, CA: You Are For or Against the Manufacturing and Sale of Recreational Marijuana?
Since the beginning of 2018, recreational marijuana uses and sales is legal in California, but in Needles, California, only sales of medical marijuana as well as the manufacturing of medical marijuana are only allow as part of the City of Needles’ Marijuana Ordinance.
According to Needles City Manager Rick Daniels, “The City’s Marijuana Ordinance since first adopted has allowed marijuana for medical use only. All of the dispensary, cultivation, manufacturing, or other permits contain that medical use only limitation. No adult use or “recreational” sales of any kind is allowed. Additionally when each of these facilities with a local permit apply for the state permit, as required, it is circulated to the City for compliance certification, and the City will not certify a non-medical license/permit. Any violations of the local ordinance or state law will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law; both criminally and through civil proceedings, including revocation of any permit to operate. Let me be clear. No sales for adult, recreational, or non medical use is allowed.”
But, some City of Needles officials want to know from the community if they support or oppose the manufacturing of marijuana for recreational uses, and if the community support or oppose the selling of recreational marijuana in Needles, California.
