As with El Monte and so many other municipalities where prohibition lives on, residents of the impoverished town of Lemoore undercut city plans to build a cannabis industry within its city limits.
- Lemoore’s City Manager reported this week that the developer who wanted to turn a vacant lot into a cultivation, manufacturing, distribution and retail site has pulled out, due to citizen protests.
- “We’re not anti-weed or anti-cannabis,” said concerned citizen Mark Gleaton. “We’re anti-location. We’ve got houses, we have daycares, we have two neighborhood parks within under 600 feet from this site.”
