There soon will be opportunities as the new cannabis market shapes 
up. There will be needs to be met in the growing, processing and 
distribution of cannabis. The distribution will be accomplished 
through dispensaries. Well-regulated dispensaries are necessary to 
distribute the cannabis to the thousands of users in Butte County.

Without a good local dispensary, people would be forced to obtain 
their cannabis on the illegal market. The whole point of legalization 
is to eliminate the problems caused by prohibition and minimize the 
illegal market. We need local dispensaries if we expect to secure these goals.

On Tuesday, Nov. 17, the Chico City Council will decide whether to 
agendize discussion about the need for local dispensaries. Public 
input will be taken. Please come if you want a functional dispensary 
ordinance for Chico. Bring your information and ideas about why Chico 
needs local cannabis dispensaries.
