Pot pushers don't care about your kids, says PJI spokesman

A California public school superintendent worries that a medical marijuana evaluation shop across from the school could have a bad influence on students. 

Even though there is no pot on the premises, Standard School District Superintendent Paul Meyers, in Bakersfield, calls it inappropriate that the facility is so close to an elementary school.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)Medical marijuana has been legal in California since 1996, when voters approved the Compassionate Use Act.

Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute agrees with that assertion and says operators aren't concerned about the kids – just about making a quick buck.

He says the opening of the medical marijuana facility near a school should raise the alarm of parents and the community in California.

Dacus tells OneNewsNow: "These pot shops definitely send a message to kids that marijuana is okay and it's acceptable, and it's made available in retail, and it should be something that they should experiment with and try, if not now then later."

Meyers reports the Kern County Board of Supervisors has heard complaints from parents and board members, and is reportedly working on a solution.
