While CDC supposedly has medical values, especially for Cancer survivors, what about marijuana being a "gateway drug" for other negative drugs?

Q. What is needed for approval or what does approval depend upon?
What is the source(s) for their products?
Questions:1. Does this need a prescription? If so, why do we need in-store advice/expertise?2. With delivery services available, why do we need a physical presence?
Also a liquor store within 100 feet on the same side of the road.
A lot of dispensaries have so many products its hard to discern what will work the best for insomnia. Most of the time it doesn’t seem like people working at the counter know what is the best for any given usage. What kind of training will the sales people have?
So there is no formal training or certification requirements for staff.
What is going to be the average price point
Have you connected with Saint Johns? they have a licensed Cannabis doctor on staff
A "national training program" is not the same as an independent certification.
Great presentation on the medicinal value of CBD, etc., however, as a parent of former teenagers MJ was sometimes used as a gateway drug for other stronger drugs. Overcoming that old stigma is crucial to your success.
So you can get a prescription on line based on what I say my needs are without my Dr.’s approval ?
our emails are:
Thank you Erin/Paul
What are you proposing?
Why can’t we replace with new murals that don’t offend people?
Unfortunately some of the scenes from the past are not going to be pretty in today’s context, however they are an accurate and true portrayal of real history. It’s sad but true. The pain of the past should also not be overlooked or sugar coated.
Spanish philosopher George Santayana is credited with the aphorism, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,”
Is this not a great educational opportunity? Better to whitewash it? Really????
Why would not the perceived issues in the panels not make great educational opportunities> Does eliminating these images further education and understanding?
I grew up in Detroit, at the DIA we have the classic Diego Rivera mural that accurately portrays they history of the times. I can’t imagine them washing that down to something that doesn’t offend anyone.
At Gettysburg where there are statues of both Union and Confederate soldiers they go to great effort to explain why the people were there what they represented. No hiding any of the facts and truths of the participants. NONE of the statues have been or should be removed. Gettysburg National Park is in effect an outdoor museum. History is History, good, bad, indifferent present ALL the facts.
Just to clarify, I am not saying to wipe away our history at all, we need to honor our history so it is not repeated and we continue to make progress. Confederate statues have been removed because they are offensive. Our history can be preserved - I’m not sure it needs to be in the form of the mural. It is a good discussion. To be continued
And I would want to learn more about the murals/issues
Total budgeted fees paid by Market Rate units in 2021 is about $300,000. About 50% of one unit.
Question on housing
Why did our own Housing Commissioner - Lenora Camner - tell the State to demand MORE housing of Santa Monica than was originally proposed?
What is the influence of Abundant Housing LA (AHLA)? The state originally required Santa Monica produce 4,829 units with 3,673 being affordable. The jump to 8,895 (+84%) was due to AHLA sending a legal letter to the state demanding changes to the methodology to result in these unsubstantiated numbers. AHLA also seemed to heavily influence the CA HCD response to the SM submission.
Most importantly, we do not have enough
Please let Marc Vervlle present his questions/exceptions?
Does ellis support Bill Brand's initiative to preserve local control over land use in our city?
The population in SM is declining. No one is riding the Expo line because it has very little transit network utility value. Is that even being acknowledged?
Any other questions?
No addressing the vacancy issue
If we comply with the state , is Santa Monica destined to become a suburb of LA and not a city?
People can fight back - there will be an intiative to oppose the state take-over!!!!!
There are 600 luxury units being built on the border of SM at Bundy (The Edge) with NO affordable units. Why are allowing that to happen?
Vacancy tax is a great idea
Bond issue to get funds, taxes on investment properties and properties with more than 5% empty apartments
Yes, let's demand a vacancy tax!!!
Do we know who the homeless are and the impact of the transiency issue? Who should SM be responsible for? Without a systematic data collection approach, how can we even define the SM-specific problem?
Who really wants to "own" the issue of Homelesss?
Can homeless funds be used towards housing funds?
We should just set up homeless centers on the front lawns of the City Council homes. They would fix things real fast.
Third Street Promenade:The DTSM “plan” is entirely focused on aspirational outcomes and then proposes zoning changes, among other things. However:• What detailed analysis supports the projected outcomes?• What analyses have been completed that identify infrastructure and traffic management requirements necessary to support such outcomes?• What metrics are used to assess incoming and outgoing customer volumes, origins, transportation mode or foot traffic flows.• What analyses of pedestrian flows between the commercial properties od SM Place, the Ocean Ave hotels and the Promenade have been completed?
We definitely need a hardware store - is retail rent control impossible, or rent subsidies for specifically needed businesses?
"Hardware" store at 11th, between Colorado/Olympic
Without adequate security on the Promenade and city parks, small businesses and citizens will not thrive or feel safe.
Elizabeth and Alissa, my hats off to you for putting together and excellent zoom-meeting.
