'Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.'
We are fighting to keep another big industry from targeting our communities. We are committed to protecting our communities and from the consequences of commercialized marijuana. Looking at the sobering costs in health care, education, accidents, lost productivity and law enforcement as a result of commercialized substance use, and addiction-for- profit companies, we oppose the establishment of pot shops in D.C.
We envision a city free from a commercial marijuana industry. We've seen the predatory tactics of the alcohol and Big Tobacco industries and believe that we do not need to repeat mistakes of the past.
