While Yo! Venice! does not usually make political endorsements, we do endorse Eric Garcetti for Mayor. Garcetti, who grew up in Los Angeles, knows the dynamics of Venice well and will likely be the best candidate for our community.
In regard to measures D,E and F, which deal with medical marijuana regulation and taxation: It appears that Proposition D is the measure to vote yes on. It is supported by the LA Times and Bill Rosendahl amongst others. The measure would allow about 135 medical marijuana dispensaries to remain open for business. The LA Times notes that “it’s the most readily enforceable of the three cannabis-related measures on the ballot”.
