“Marijuana legalization may be put on hold in San Mateo,” Peninsula, Dec. 7
Marijuana holdout shows ignorance
I had to uproot from my city three years ago and move to San Bruno because the cost of living grew beyond my means. If only I had set up a cannabis “clinic” on the San Francisco-Daly City border. Ahhh, the droves of San Mateans who flock to the border dispensaries would have enabled me to profit and stay where I was born. Alas, that was just a pipedream.
Yet, the boneheads who run San Mateo County can’t see that weed is a nonissue and stubbornly hold on to failed drug warrior ideas. Don’t continue their lying madness. Instead, become enlightened and fill your county coffers to repair roads, grow housing and benefit your citizens.
“Mayor to reallocate Prop. W funds,” The City, Dec. 9
Easy answer to CCSF enrollment growth
Rafael Mandelman is quoted as saying, “Free City College could be a very important part of building our enrollment and maintaining our programs. If we can’t rebuild our enrollment, we’re facing a pretty radical downsizing of the college.”
The single-most important way to increase enrollment at City College is to get rid of the real fear of having our accreditation taken away, which has been hanging over our heads for years. Before the accreditation crisis, CCSF had an enrollment up to 100,000. People aren’t going to invest their future in a school that may not be there tomorrow.
Free City College would be great, too. But first we have to make sure we are accredited now and into the future.
