Not sure this bill will get 2/3 needed to pass in Sacramento but tying the number of cannabis stores to the number of liquor licenses makes a lot of sense. If a community tolerates alcohol sales it should tolerate cannabis sales, let's stop stigmatizing cannabis and its consumers.

There's not really any logical argument why we should have our town packed with dispensaries of the more dangerous drug, alcohol, but no options for legal cannabis for those of us who want to keep ourselves sharper and not deal with the slurring drunks staggering around. I had to sidestep/avoid a fight with some drunken idiot just last Sat. Apparently he didn't like the fact that I walked past him without saying hello. Yes, he wanted to fight be because i wasn't friendly to him...alcohol is so cool.
