What Your Vote Means on November 3rd, 2020


NO

A NO vote will give us an opportunity to have input and force the city to write a tax measure that DOES NOT increase the number of pot shops in our city.

YES

A YES vote WILL increase the number of pot shops in our city, with NO limit!

The Proof


VOTE NO ON MEASURE U and force the City to WRITE A TAX MEASURE THAT DOES NOT INCREASE THE NUMBER OF POT SHOPS IN OUR CITY. WE ALREADY HAVE TOO MANY POT SHOPS!

Language on the Ballot

"The retail cannabis tax will only be applicable to sales of the NINE businesses selling cannabis under Measure U." (Spelling out the number 9 wasn't an accident. Under the current law of Measure L, only seven (7) businesses selling cannabis are allowed , not NINE!)

The Hidden Truth

There are currently 7 allowed pot shops in Jurupa Valley. Measure U is proposing the addition of 2 more, with NO maximums in sight. This was done by changing language that most people will not read or understand.

They changed the current Measure L, which allows (1) shop per 15,000 residents, and replaced the language to say (1) shop per 10,000 residents with no limit. This means as the population grows, so do pot shops.

This measure will increase the number of pot shops by 33%!

PROOF from Section 9.243.020 of Measure U

B. Limitation on Number of Retailers. In order to prevent excessive concentration, only one retailer for every 10,000 residents shall be permitted to operate in the City, with any fraction of that ratio being rounded down to the nearest whole number. The City’s population shall be determined based on the information provided by the Demographic Research Unit of the California Department of Finance pursuant to California Government Code sections 13073 and 13073.5. The City Council shall, by resolution, confirm the number of retailers that can operate in the City based on the City’s population.

Section E (From Measure L, which is currently in place)

E. Cannabis Businesses Legal Non-Conforming Uses. 1. In 2018, the voters of Jurupa Valley approved Measure L which adopted Ordinance No. 2018-14 allowing for exempted commercial cannabis activity. In order to avoid excessive concentration of retail-related commercial cannabis activity in the City, Measure L limited the number of retailers within the City to one (1) per fifteen thousand (15,000) City residents. As of the effective date of this Chapter, a maximum of seven (7) exempted retail cannabis businesses are allowed in the City.
