I want to support my city and it bring in more tax revenue to help it's residents with more important things!

If one looks on a map for current dispensiries, there is a very large gap between San Francisco and San Jose. Allowing dispensiries in Mountain View will bring a steady stream of tax revenue, tourists and visitors that will spend money in our local businesses, and provide job opportunities.

My child or other children--or those who are NOT cannabis users could find themselves near an area and get second hand high/contact. Hell, that is already happening on Castro Street, as nothing is being done to prevent its use in public, even though it is not allowed to be used in public. Damn shameful! :(

When it gets approved--because I fear the City Council members do NOT share my beliefs and will cater to the Big Business that is legal marijuana and approve the measure--it should be heavily taxed if sold in MV.

8. Please provide any additional comments, questions or concerns regarding the regulation of cannabis in Mountain View:
Too many communities in the area seem concerned with overriding the stated opinion of California voters and regulating against cannabis. Mountain View should take advantage of this by making cannabis dispensaries relatively easy to open, and by placing a local tax on cannabis sales. Let's take advantage of cannabis sales to raise money for schools and improved services.
