NO on S - it will bring more crime. Ask LAPD. Ask FBI. Ask the people who live around 16th and Palm.

I agree No on S! I don’t support pot shops due to the following personal experience I’ve had with them. I work in a very small office building here in the north county that has 7 office suites. Over the last 3 years, there have been 4 different pot shops there. Currently there are 2 of them operating. The city I work in does not allow pot shops, so these businesses are operating illegally without any permits. The pot shops have a significant negative affect on the businesses in our building as well as the surrounding neighborhood. There are people, mostly young men, constantly coming and going as well as loitering in groups day and night in and around the pot shops. They smoke continuously, both cigarettes and marijuana in our parking lot and other shared spaces. My office becomes overcome by the smell of marijuana almost every day making it very difficult to work and conduct business. We can never leave our door open because of the smell as well as for our safety. They leave trash and cigarette butts in our parking lot and in our landscaping and our shared bathrooms have been vandalized many times which has become very expensive to repair. On 4 occasions, the pot shops have been burglarized. Their windows have been smashed and everything inside stolen. Most recently, in July, there was an armed hold up in the middle of the day. That closed the pot shop down for a few days as the FBI investigated but they opened right back up after that.

page 2 The owners of the pot shops obviously do not want to call attention to themselves, so each time something like this happens, it has been the other business owners in the building who have alerted the police and authorities, not them. It is extremely scary to come to work each day knowing that we are sharing our space with dangerous criminals and could ourselves become a victim of a crime! One of the businesses in our building is a psychiatrist who treats families, many with young children. He has lost many clients due to the pot shops and is very upset and concerned about it. Patients have found our office building to no longer be a safe place to take their children because of the questionable characters loitering and the marijuana smoke they have to walk through coming and going from the office. One child was threatened and almost attacked by a large dog sitting with his owner outside one of the pot shops. The owners of these businesses are not upstanding citizens who want to comply with regulations and the law. It is a waste of our time and money to try and regulate them. They will continue to operate wherever and however they feel like. Vote No to pot shop propositions!

Thank you for sharing your experience with these so called "medical marijuana" dispenseries. The people of Imperial Beach are smart. They know that this is a smoke screen for setting up illegal potshops. Please read all of the comments posted by the supporters of Prop S. These are people that w Nill say and do anything to get their way. Let them take their business elsewhere. Imperial Beach does not need it. Vote Local. Vote NO on prop S. Thanks and God Bless Imperial Beach. The BEST is before us!

so now 'ib needs' has taken on yet another persona....this time as a witness to an imaginary world in north county.... that's beautiful....when there is no truth to support your position you just make up lies.... residences like dante resent 'foreigners' getting involved in our city.... and since dante is a fair man i'm sure he's referring to both sides.... ....of course you could use your real name and picture ....or are you going to tell us that you used to live in ib but have fled in fear of my 'harsh words'...

Libi - stop it already. "....of course you could use your real name and picture ....or are you going to tell us that you used to live in ib but have fled in fear of my 'harsh words'..." As I stated before, the pro S cannont be trusted. YES you fall into that group. No I don't fear your pen. S is bad on its on merits. Only the very stupid see otherwise. Even dumb people can see S is bad and dangerous for Imperial Beach.I live in IB, as does my family. We OWN several propertries, residential and commericial in IB. Prop S is set to ruin Imperial Beach, and losers who have nothing will be able to vote. Renters come and go, owners who invested in this community get the remains of bad laws like prop s. This is not about supporting medical patients, it is about ruining a city because of the law of unintended consequences. Show me ONE safe pot store and I can show you a hundred dangerous ones.

...'prop s cannot be trusted'.....'stupid'....'dumb'.....'bad and dangerous'....'losers who have nothing'... why don't you cry about being picked on and being called names again... just a few minutes ago you wrote that you lived in the ghetto in north county...now you live in ib...and you own half the town... and yet you still won't reveal yourself... weed stores are no more 'dangerous' than jewelry or liquor stores... and if you would analyze the police blotters and health statistics the harm to self and society is far less with weed then it is with booze..... weed stores provide safe access....safe access for the farmer, the retailer, the consumer, the community.... ...that's why it's called safe access....it's safer for all.....

There is nothing safe about prop S. Weed is not safe for Imperial Beach

Weed is already here in IB and so far the only people profiting from pot are the police and prisons. Not in history have we seen a nation imprison so many of it's people.
