How will legalizing marijuana affect our neighborhoods?


  1. Like pill mills, pot shops are in business to make money and will sell to anyone who produces a “recommendation” which can be obtained by paying a fee and claiming any medical condition, even a headache.
  2. Dispensaries are often tied to organized crime which are often multi-million dollar organizations.
  3. Common byproducts related to dispensaries include: drug dealing, sales to minors, loitering, heavy vehicle and foot traffic in retail areas, increased noise, robberies of customers near the facilities, and the loss of other commercial businesses who do not want to be located in the vicinity of marijuana dispensaries.
  4. Medicine is NOT TAXED in Florida.   The state will make money off of licensing Pot Shops... the more shops the more money.
  5. Increased crime: Teen Gunman in North Park Marijuana Dispensary
