Regarding marijuana sales and usage regulations
This post contains the personal research of a local LA resident (bio at the bottom). She summed up her own research and is sharing it in the hope that her summary and reasoning helps others make their own decisions about how to vote (rather than just randomly filling in Yes or No).
This post is not sponsored in any way, but it is liberally biased.
The following measure will appear on the ballot of anyone in the CITY of Los Angeles.
Measure N has now been abandoned by it’s original supporters. They are instead urging people to vote yes on M. So since basically no one is behind Measure N anymore, I’m voting NO. Head on over to my summary of Measure M to learn about that instead.
NO on N
Note: Only one of either M or N can be passed, so whichever gets the most Yes votes wins. The original supporters of Measure N have now actually abandoned N and are also urging voters to vote Yes on M and No on N.
How Others Are Voting
The Republican Party has not issued an endorsement for or against this Measure.

About the author:
Just want to give a little background so you can get a feel for who I am and whether you might be interested in voting similarly to me. I’m a first generation American (English parents), I went to public school in Santa Monica, and later attended UC Berkeley. I’m in my early 30s, currently am a renter in Venice Beach, and own a small business in Los Angeles.
I’ve never been very political, but the election results of 2016 have really compelled me to get informed and involved. In the past I have voted quite liberally, both financially and socially. However, I voted for Hillary in the primaries (rather than Bernie), so I wouldn’t say I’m super far left.
I’m always open to hearing new facts and opinions, as long as they are presented in a respectful manner. So feel free to comment.
