banning marijuana dispensaries came as no surprise to me considering the apes we have on the council. Kids go right past liquor stores and frequent places that sell cigarettes and both kill over 5 million people worldwide each year and yet you have a drug that helps people with NO side effects and you treat it like am ape with a computer.It never seems to amaze me when I hear about such primative thinking. Now everyone go home and take your legal drugs so you kids can grow up and die early just like you stupid animals...

Thank you City Council! No need to make it any easier for our children to fall into the trap of drug use. We don't need this in the Bay Area, bad enough it's all too easy in other parts of our State:

Most of the people that showed up to this meeting are the self appointed MORAL police which probably don''t even know what Marijuana is. Really, why is it so harmful?? because some people think it is? Bill is right, these folks need to get off their Ambien and Oxycontin.

I also want to post a "LOL" and LMAO" regarding the comment by Giovanni about how it seems to be easier to get Marijuana in other parts of the state. The city of Mountain View is shooting itself in the foot by not supporting facts, reasoning and safe medecine which should be available to all without some American version of shariah law.

We don't need the problems that San Jose has with illegal re-selling of the drug, trafficking the cards or the crime that follows it.
