Survey: No love for cannabis sales in LA

Advocates for local marijuana legalization might want to take note of a survey open through the end of the week in Los Altos – thus far, detractors appear to be carrying the day.

The Los Altos City Council wants to gauge resident support for allowing commercial marijuana businesses in Los Altos, ranging from delivery services to brick-and-mortar establishments. Both are currently banned. If the city chooses to lift that ban, it would need both to draft a new ordinance and to decide on whether, and how, to tax commercial sales.

The survey, which has been running since last month, has collected approximately 352 responses, 60 percent of which skew against the notion of legalizing commercial activity. Respondents can weigh in on whether to allow marijuana sales and, if so, where and under what circumstances – ranging from the number of shops to consider to where in the city they might be located.
