However, they advise allowing delivery within Pasadena so individuals who have obtained valid licenses by doctors can receive their medicine.However, Proposition 64 — which would allow California to regulate the recreational use of marijuana — has qualified for November’s upcoming ballot and could impact Pasadena City’s current marijuana ordinances.Gordo said he hopes the citizens of Pasadena will come to meetings and weigh in on the issue of marijuana and how it could affect the city.“The marijuana issue is going to present challenges, there’s no question in my mind about that,” Gordo said. “It presents issues of public safety and medicine. It will present serious issues for the City Council and the city to grapple with, and I’m hoping people will come and weigh in.”Johnson mirrored Gordo’s concerns about the legalization of recreational marijuana.“The discussion about the recreational program opens up concerns about abuse and loss of progress we’ve made in smoke-free environments, there’s an entirely separate set of concerns that come with that.” Johnson said.The EdTech meeting will take place on September 15 at 8:00 a.m. in Council Conference Room S246 of Pasadena City Hall located at 100 North Garfield Avenue.center_img Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
