Pot on Sebastopol agenda

A new ordinance went into effect today: people in Sebastopol’s multiunit dwellings can’t smoke tobacco indoors.

Tonight, city councilmembers will discuss whether the ordinance should exempt smoking medical marijuana.

They’ll also consider reducing the number of medical marijuana dispensaries in the city to one place only, down from two.

The council meeting starts at 6 p.m. at the Sebastopol Youth Annex, 425 Morris St.

Staff Writer Sam Scott outlined the debate over the city’s smoking ban in July.

  • Concerned in Sebastopol

    Does anyone else find it ‘weird’ that Sebastopol early on had approved the 2nd opening of a dispensary, in large part because of the Robert Jacob (CEO of Peace in Medicine). But then suddenly when Robert Jacob is appointed to the Sebastopol Planning Commission, conflict of interest(?), there is then a sudden change of heart among the City Council? Carl Kerwick (CFO Peace in Medicine) also now sits on the Sebastopol Business Outreach Committee. This sounds like back alley politics to me.
