    NO pot shops. This is the last thing you should be spending time on. How dare you sell out our children and community!

    The city has larger issues to focus on like, encampments, needle litter, banning needle distribution in the city, helping businesses during COVID-19 and empowering our law enforcement officers to enforce the laws. This seems to be an item that is being forced through. Cannabis shops are not a priority and you are not listening to our law enforcement concerns on this.

    Now is absolutely the appropriate time to move forward on this. We have an extreme level of PTSD related to the Camp fire, Bear fire, covid19 and the economic fall out. One of the benefits of legalized cannabis is that is can be used as an anxiety reducing resource. Instead of stalling on this issue that WILL exist at some point, we should be doing all that we can for the local businesses that can generate revenue from running a legal site, as well assist citizens that use the services.

    Air quality right now is officially "unhealthy", after seveal days of extremely hazardous air quality. Yet you continue to consider making people stand outside in the smoke and ash for an opportunity to address the council a meeting "open to the public". This is disrespectful, cynical, and unhealthful. Cancel this meeting until at least the air quality falls into the healthy range.

    Please wait till we can all have a better way to have a true open forum for this serious decision. With the critical emergencies that are currently happening within our city and county, put this on the back burner till we find some solutions to open the businesses that are closed due to COVID.

    Put this issue aside and begin solving some of the major problems that this community has. Transient camping issues, drug abuse, mental health issues, cleaning up Bidwell Park, needle distribution. Pot sales are bad for the community at large and should be addressed as a medical issue only.

    At this time the topic of opening cannabis dispensaries should not be on the agenda! Our city has to many other major issues that need to be addressed prior to moving forward with spending the time and resources to deal with this. Lets focus on cleaning up the mess the brown deal has created before we even begin to move forward with the idea of allowing such businesses to open. How can a business like this open with Brown and Stone wont let mom and pop shops open due to covid?

    NO TO CANNABIS DISPENSARIES! We need to focus on brining our community together in a more healthy way and focusing on the family values that Chico once stood for. Family togetherness, family activities, family and communities engaging together in healthy ways. This is not what Chico Needs!

    Why are we focusing on this when we have so many other problems! Put this on the back burner until we get through Covid and the fires! Brown can wait, she's done enough to destroy this city already!

    No, we do not need cannabis dispensaries in our city. Hasn't enough been done to our city by drug pushers? Our city has so many other problems, this is ridiculous to even entertain this now.

    Brown is as bad for our city as cannabis. I go on record as strenuously opposing pot sales and use in Chico and in Butte County. The only people who should be using it are cancer patients, those with seizure disorders, and people who are in SEVERE chronic pain. This, like so many other things being normalized, like pedophilia, is WRONG. People don’t want to admit they just want to toke up free of guilt I guess. Living a drug free life gives me clarity of purpose and doesn’t rob me of motivation!

    Come on City Council lets take care of more important issue, like camping in the park, needles and garbage in our water ways than focusing on Cannabis Dispensaries right now!
    Brown you created this mess, why create another mess before this first one is CLEANED up?

    No to cannabis dispensaries now. This needs to be postponed for at least a year until the Covid issue is completely over. Don’t need to add any other issues to deal with at this time!
