SBPOA Opposes Local Marijuana Initiative

The San Bernardino Police Officers Association opposes the local marijuana dispensary ballot measure in the upcoming November 2016 Election.

Unfortunately, there has been some confusion on SBPOA’s position – therefore we wanted to state clearly for the voters of San Bernardino that our association does not support this initiative.

We believe the confusion over our position was inadvertently caused by discussions about different proposals and pending statewide initiatives on this topic.

This initiative was rushed and not thoroughly vetted.  Public safety must be the top priority of our city. We believe this initiative carries with it many risks and will not improve safety of the residents and families of San Bernardino.
