Plastic straws should be banned.

I would vote Yes to the removal of plastic bottle sales as long as the filling stations will provide filtered water.

Get rid of the plastic! Reduce waste and help with the HUGE problem of plastics in our environment and the ocean. I love the idea of water bottle filling stations. I always carry a stainless steele water bottle with me I hate plastic bottles.

What are the top issues of concern related to cannabis use and sales that the City may be able to address through its regulations?
Look at all the crime associated with canabis storefronts. Many robberies and shootings. Don't bring this to SLO.
The City is looking at limitations on the total number of cannabis businesses and total floor area dedicated to these uses. Does this seem like an effective way to address the potential proliferation of cannabis businesses in the City? Is proliferation of marijuana related businesses a concern?
Yes. Don't allow any!
The City is considering establishing administrative and license fees for cannabis related businesses to ensure that the costs of regulations are covered. What level of taxation should the City pursue in addition to its efforts to pursue cost recovery (low, medium, or high)?
Very high. The costs to the city will be excessive.
In general, should cannabis related businesses be located completely out of site (e.g. on local streets in services and manufacturing areas)? Or, is it okay for some businesses, such as retail stores, to be located along arterial streets? What about downtown?
The downtown is already full of homeless. Adding this will not help the bad image downtown already has.

Tremendous amount of waste, and I often forget to tell my server to bring my drink without a straw. I am in full support of this proposal.

I agree with straws being provided only if asked for.

Patrons should be offered a straw at restaurants; it should not automatically be given. These straws should be paper, not plastic.

We have a bottle deposit that we pay on plastic and glass bottles. Is there a program for the city to recoup these funds? If not, we should not sell them; we should only sell refillable bottles. If this is impossible to supervise or regulate, only allow glass bottles to be sold inside the city. Plastic bottles are not finding their way to recycling facilities.
We could also charge an additional city recycling fee.

Reducing plastic bottle waste is a good idea. Re-filling stations are a nice idea as well but who is going to pay for them? Our city government already spends more than it should. I am not in favor of more taxes to pay for things like this.

This is a long-overdue regulation in my opinion. Let's please make this happen!
