Video/Podcast. Watch (or listen) to the HMB City Council as it listens to citizens as they share their opinion on Cannabis in HMB. During this meeting, City Staff also introduced the Cannabis Starts Ordinance.
Starts are not smelly and can’t get you high. They are like the geranium, daisy or rose starts you buy at a nursery. HMB voters will get to vote pro or con for the starts ordinance in November. If, yes, farmers get to grow starts, and only starts.
Please watch/listen to this meeting so you clearly understand the dynamics, which include fear for our children, to Farmer’s property rights. Farmer John needs to grow, or he will have to sell his farm. City Council showed concern that if the farmers are not allowed to grow, they may sell their farms and then that would likely lead to more development, losing the country feel of or town.
Three other activities in the Cannabis Chain ~ Flower Grow, Manufacture and Dispensaries will be on the November ballot, as advisory measures.
Testing is not being considered at this time.
