The new act allows for legal medical marijuana businesses to become licensed according to each individual town's unique rules and zoning. Scio simply has to opt-in for the new law, and write our own parameters for how and where these new business will operate. We need these businesses, and we need them in Scio to collect from the large tax windfall that they will create. Also, creating legitimate, licensed facilities will dismantle the black market production and distribution of marijuana that exists today.
71% of residents in Scio support medical marijuana. We need our Board of Trustees to act on behalf of Scio residents to create these opportunities for our future.
