…will be used to fund public health,
and enforcement of cannabis codes and statutes.
…will be directed to programming that benefits children and youth (home visitation, preschool, childhood literacy programs, after-school programs), and drug programs with special emphasis on children in neighborhoods and populations with the most disparities.
Measure X is a reboot of Measure B. Why we believe we can see it across the finish line this time…
Now more than ever we need to ensure that our children and youth have the resources they need to thrive. This new revenue is an opportunity to expand proven programs for children and youth that have seen significant cuts through the years and due the impacts of Covid 19 our community may be looking at even more cuts to desperately needed programs.
Taxpayers like you will be covering the impacts of prop 64 and we will miss the opportunity to fund vital programs that help our kids. However, Cannabis businesses will begin opening without any revenue to offset impacts to our community. Cannabis is here to stay. Measure X will ensure Cannabis business pay a fair share AND that this new revenue funds desperately needed programs for our kids.
Supporting Measure X will open up more jobs in San Joaquin County and enable us to expand vitally needed programs for the homeless, public health and children. This is a user tax only Cannabis businesses will pay and is the best path forward for the future of our county.
Measure X will only tax cannabis businesses and ensure that they pay their fair share, just like any other business in San Joaquin County. With 50% of these taxes guaranteed to fund vital services for our children and youth, like early childhood education, family strengthening, after school and mentoring programs, Measure X will provide opportunities and better outcomes for ALL of San Joaquin County’s children.
Cannabis businesses are being approved right now in the county. A yes vote on Measure X will make sure these businesses are dealt with in a fair, consistent manner and give us the ability to invest in vitally needed programs for kids, homelessness services and public health.
