Restrictive Medical Marijuana Ordinance Continues to Spur Opposition in San Diego

The San Diego City Council will be voting on the 28th of March, on an ordinance that will serve as a de-facto ban on medical cannabis facilities in the City of San Diego. If passed as currently written, this unduly restrictive ordinance would threaten the quality of life for some of the most vulnerable members of our community and would deny safe access for San Diego patients.

Stop Sign - Stop The BanIn order to oppose the ordinance San Diego Americans for Safe Access in partnership with Canvass for a Cause have launched a coalition campaign to educate the public of the impending ban and mobilize grassroots opposition to the ban.

Over the last three weeks, Canvass for a Cause’s field work methods have mobilize patients through the medical cannabis facilities, well trained professional canvassers, and by leading a traditional volunteer based political effort giving the people a unique opportunity to express their opposition to this ban. Our campaign is employing Canvass for a Cause’s field tested approach to public education to generate massive quantities of constituent communications to the city council members urging them to amend the ordinance and approve an ordinance that guarantees safe access.
