Vote No on Prop 16

Currently, California state law gives local elected officials the right to arrange to provide electricity within their jurisdiction through a contract with an electricity provider other than investor-owned utilities. If Proposition 16 is approved by voters, it will take a two-thirds vote of the electorate before a public agency could enter the retail power business. This will make it more difficult than it is currently for local entities to form either municipal utilities, or community wide clean electricity districts called Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs).

People’s strongly supports a consumer’s right to choose their power source and recommends a No vote on proposition 16 in the upcoming June election.

Hemp is our history week

Celebrate Hemp History Week on Monday, May 17th at the La Jolla Brew House. It’ll be a free night of industrial hemp product giveaways, entertainment, hemp beer and more! As part of the night’s celebration, the Brew House will be honoring the late Jack Herer —one of the greatest hemp activists of our time — with a screening of “Hemp for Victory”, a U.S. Government video that the government tried to deny existed until Jack rediscovered it.

The evening’s main presenter will be Dion Markgraff editor and historian of the hemp plant. Also speaking will be David Bronner, a former board member of Vote Hemp and a member of the Dr. Bronner family.

The La Jolla Brew House is located at 7536 Fay Street in La Jolla. (858) 456-6279
