VIDEO: Voices Around Town

Do you agree with the city's indefinite ban on medical marijuana?

Every week the Voice heads to Castro Street in downtown Mountain View to ask passers by their opinion of a current event. This week we ask whether people supported the city's recent decision to indefinitely bar medical marijuana dispensaries within the city.

Spoiler: 100% of the interviewees support allowing medical cannabis dispensaries and oppose the moratorium.

Too bad the 80-90% of Mountain View residents who feel similarly didn't make their voices heard to the City Council. Instead, a small, organized group of opponents flooded the City Council with "reefer madness" propaganda. Sadly, the City Council turned their backs on the sick and suffering residents they are supposed to serve.
