The city needs to reevaluate the tax structure. The Cannabis industry can be very lucrative for all players involved, but if the businesses are over-taxed it will ruin it for everyone. We also should have sanctioned smoking clubs/coffee shops.

Those of us using cannabis for pain have experienced a sharp increase in our medical costs. I may need to switch to oxycodone because of the cost.

Other - Get input from the industry. Current business practices are good.


I have additional comments related to retail sales of cannabis not addressed in this survey:
The City of Vallejo is the entry into Napa Valley and the North Bay. There is opportunity in this location that we should not be afraid to take advantage of. Lets embrace this industry and take our examples from the Netherlands and other cities around the world and design a district to allow adult recreational use of cannabis. We also need to look at expanding the hemp industry in this city and zone for industrial manufacturing and distribution of all the products that can come from that byproduct of cannabis. Lastly, explore the scientific and medical research facilities being established on Mare Island. Putting Vallejo in the forefront of a new industry on the west coast and the nation.

I hate that we have so many pot stores in town!! We had approx 3 dozen at the high point. We have no way of knowing if they're really paying enough taxes to the city because it's all 'cash only' businesses.
