Cannabis activities were discussed at length during the last city council meeting Oct. 4.

With the passing of SB 94, recreational and medical licensing for marijuana use now fall under one regulation known as the Medicinal and Adult Use of Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act. Last February the council imposed a temporary moratorium on cannabis which was extended the following month. The current moratorium has no impact on medical marijuana, personal use, possession or indoor cultivation as allowed by Prop.64. This past July 2017 the Citizens Initiative was submitted to the city which would allow for retailers, lounges and manufacturing within the city in the commercial/mixed use (C-MU-1 and C-MU-2) zones Palm Avenue and Seacoast Drive.

The Association of Cannabis Professional has brought forth the initiative and the city may be faced with a ballot initiative either in the next regular election or a special election with a cost to the city between $250,000 to $350,000. The council discussed options and the city attorney Jennifer Lyon suggested the council come to a consensus and come up with its own regulations prior to all the signatures being collected by the proponents. Staff recommended a few options to the council: extending the moratorium; authorize the city manager to spend $65,000 to conduct more research; direct city manager and city attorney to provide additional information and options. An Ad Hoc committee headed by Councilwoman Lorie Bragg and Councilman Mark West met with residents tor receive input on the issue but the meeting was not well attended. During the public comment three residents spoke in favor of the initiative.

Becca Taylor, a representative for the Association of Cannabis Professionals, was asked why Imperial Beach was chosen. She said it was due to the high number of people who voted in support of Prop. 64. Currently the cities of San Diego, La Mesa and Lemon Grove  have allowed dispensaries within their city limits.

“We want you guys to come up with your own ordinance that is best for IB,” said Taylor when asked by Councilman Ed Spriggs if the organization would go along with a decision by the council which would save the city money.

Spriggs suggested an approach which includes: the council has to come up with its position that reflects the wishes of the constituents; the issue requires more research and information. “Then we’ll be in a position to sit with the sponsors and discuss and get everybody under the same tent so that we don’t have to have a special election. Then if it fails we have the alternative measure for the election,” he said.

The timing for a decision by the city is December or early January which is when they expect the organization to have all the signatures ready to be submitted.

“There are standard ordinances for each community. No two are the same. We pulled out regulations from Colorado…In IB we have two commercial zones, I-75 and Seacoast Drive. We have put together preliminary maps with areas where it would not be eligible (schools and places where people congregate),” said Assistant City Manager Steve Dush.

“Our community has made a clear choice during the last election,” said Mayor Serge Dedina on the issue. “I expected more people to talk about it…I expected people to advocate for it,” he said about the lack of speakers.

An option for the council is to extend the moratorium for one year due to expire in Feb. 2018. “We can shorten it if we want to…we should give ourselves the maximum amount of time available. Our intention is to come up with an ordinance,” said Dush.

Spriggs suggested to proceed with spending $65,000 to further study the issue and and make a decision.

In other business:

• Doctor Sayone Thihalolipavan, deputy public officer of Health and Human Services Agency made a presentation on Hepatitis A. He said that Hepatitis A can cause liver disease and can last from a few weeks to several months. It has a long incubation period of up to 28 days. The virus can live outside the body for months depending on the environment the virus. Hepatitis A is a fecal oral disease that can be transmitted to others if hands are not washed properly after using the restroom.

Symptoms include nausea, fatigue, fever, jaundice, loss of appetite. This year there have been 495 cases in San Diego - the second largest outbreak in the country since 1999. A local health emergency was declared in san Diego Sept. 1. Adequate chlorination of water kills the virus. One hand washing station has been placed in Imperial Beach near Second Street and Palm Avenue.

• October was proclaimed the eight annual River Action Month based on the efforts of many volunteers who clean up the valley and river shed on both sides of the border.

• The council heard the first reading of a resolution to amend the retirement contract for lifeguard Tier 1 and 2. The second reading will be done at the Nov. 1 meeting. The ordinance will take effect 30 days after approval. A motion to approve the first reading passed unanimously and a motion to amend the contract was carried unanimously.

• The first reading to amend the municipal code to regulate electronic smoking devices to include electronic cigarettes where smoking is not allowed.

• Coastal mile marker by the Coastal Conservancy Coastal Trail was discussed. The conservancy would like to place a mile marker near the pier. In 2001 the coastal trail was declared a state trail linking 1,300 mile through the coast, beaches, bluffs ad cities. So far in San Diego County, Oceanside will get the first mile marker and Imperial Beach the second. A motion to accept the funds for the mile marker and its installation were approved unanimously.

• A resolution to have electrical power to city hall come from renewable resources was approved unanimously.

The next City Council meeting will be held Oct. 18 at 6 p.m. in the council chambers at 825 Imperial Beach Boulevard.

Loads of individuals in the United States today are considering how to get a cannabis card. Actually these special and state gave IDs are not simply something that you can make an appearance at the DMV and apply for.

Since state laws can be mind boggling, and discovering maryjane specialists can be a tedious assignment, this article ought to end up being useful on the off chance that you are looking to acquire a cannabis card today.
