Enact State Buffer of 600 feet to include Preschools
This petition had 108 supporters
The Long Beach City Council is crafting municipal code regarding the issuing of business licenses to shops distributing cannabis. At issue is a general variance for a State law under the Medical and Adult Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act which is mandating a 600-foot buffer zone surrounding preschools/daycare centers.
Until now Preschools were not considered in the State law. Currently, in Long Beach a cannabis shop can open and operate even next door to an existing preschool. Our youngest children deserve the same protections as those old enough for kindergarten and elementary school which currently endorses a 1000 foot barrier.
We need the Long Beach City Council to recognize preschool children as our youngest learners and as such give them the same consideration as K-12th grade schools. Please sign this petition in support of enacting the New State Buffer Requirements of 600 feet for daycare centers starting NOW.
