A YES vote on Measure X will ensure the county can effectively regulate Cannabis businesses, provide for public health, and expand proven programs for our children.

Why you should join us!

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.

What happens if the tax doesn’t pass?

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. 

Cannabis is here.

Let’s make sure Cannabis pays a fair share
and the money gets to kids.
