Livermore: Objective Data on MCD Regulation
City of Livermore hired this research group to get them some actual
defensibly objective data on MCD regulation. The result is not bad--
not quite ASA, but way better than the Rocklin memo or the Riverside
white paper or any of that.
Could be useful in a lobbying context--it is relatively accurate and
it is certainly unbiased or slightly prohibition biased, but it still
comes out with the clear message that regulated dispensaries can be
relatively nuisance free.
Livermore, I suspect, will nonetheless proceed to ban shortly. That
is the nature of the "rational basis." The Godbe paper is more than
enough for any locality to hang its hat on to go either way, ban or
29 pages long, it starts on p. 7 of the attached pdf which is the
complete packet for the item on the Livermore city council agenda
