NO to Sale of Recreational Marijuana on Marco Island

When a majority of City Councilor’s approved by Resolution to allow Medical Marijuana Dispensaries on Marco Island, it was recommended at that time by other Councilor’s to include PROHBIT the sale of recreational marijuana, that was rejected by a majority of Councilor’s.

A group of Marco Island citizens formed a committee BAN RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA PAC to PROHIBT the SALE of Recreational Marijuana within the boundaries of the City of Marco Island.

Subsequently Council Chairman Brechnitz presented a position paper at council meeting recommending that council prepare an Ordinance to Prohibit the Sale of Recreational Marijuana on Marco Island and that failed by a majority vote, by Councilor Grifoni, Honig, Rios and Young.

With that, our Political Action Committee is forced to proceed with OUR AGENDA TO SOLICIT SIGNED PETITIONS FROM REGISTERED VOTERS ON MARCO ISLAND TO TAKE THIS ISSUE TO VOTER’S REFERENDUM. IF THIS ISSUE RECEIVES THE REQUIRED NUMBER OF VALIDATED SIGNITURE, IT WILL BE ADDED TO THE BALLOT AS A REFERENDUM QUESTION. IF IT RECEIVES A”YES” VOTE FROM THE MAJORITY OF THE VOTERS CASTING THEIR BALLOTS DURING THE AUGUST 2020 VOTE, MARCO ISLAND CITY COUNCIL WILL THEN BE OBLIGATED TO ESTABLISH AND APPROVE AN ORDINANCE PROHIBITING THE SALE, DISTRIBUTION AND CULTIVATION OF RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA ANYWHERE WITHIN THE JURISDICTION OF MARCO ISLAND.

LET’S GET THE QUESTION ON THE AUGUST, 2020 PRIMARY BALLOT AND LET THE RESIDENTS DECIDE IF THIS IS IN THE BEST INTEREST FOR THE HEALTH, SAFETY AND WEFARE FOR OUR COMMUNITY, ESPECIALLY OUR CHILDREN.

In order for the committee to be successful, I am asking for your financial assistance to support our efforts by donating $5, $10, $15, $20 or whatever you can afford. Please send donation to BRM PAC, PO Box 1310, Marco Island, FL 34146.

Thank you,
Amadeo Petricca
