The proposed ordinance is the final to come from termed-out District 7 Supervisor Norman Yee, and as the Examiner reports, the board’s Public Safety and Neighborhood Services Committee voted Thursday to convey it to a full board vote on December 1.
““We are discussing the right of our residents to breathe clean air,” stated Yee, per the Examiner. And he’s not keen to make broad exceptions for the town’s appreciable neighborhood of marijuana followers.
Supervisor Rafael Mandelman supplied some pushback, in a preview of what’s doubtless to come when the complete Board of Supervisors discusses the proposed regulation in three weeks. As the Examiner stories, Mandelman has already recommended exempting hashish from the ordinance, particularly in mild of the truth that it’s now broadly authorized for leisure use in California, although smoking it outside shouldn’t be at all times completely authorized.
Yee has stated he’s keen to settle for an modification that might exempt medical-use hashish solely, for these with medical marijuana playing cards solely. But a broad exemption wouldn’t go far sufficient to defend residents from secondhand smoke, Yee says.
