Cannabis advocates seek special elections
Oceanside marijuana activists David and Amber Newman began circulating a petition over a year ago to legalize medical marijuana in their city. However, they suspended their signature drive to work with the city’s ad hoc committee.

INITIATIVE HAS BEEN FILED!

On June 12, 2018 a Press Conference was held at the steps of city hall to introduce a cannabis citizens initiative in the city of Oceanside. Oceanside for a Safer Community joined forces with other groups to create Oceanside Advocates for Safe Access so we can continue with the signature gathering process and move the initiative onto the 2020 Ballot that will let the voters decide the fate of safe access in the city.

OCEANSIDE INDEPENDENCE DAY PARADE

On June 30th we made history as the first cannabis group to participate in the Oceanside Independence Day Parade led by current Deputy Mayor and District 1 Council Candidate Chuck Lowery and District 2 Candidate Terry Johnson. We were exhilarated by the show of support from the crowd as many people came off the sidewalk and asked to sign our petition even as we continued through the Parade route! It’s obvious Oceanside wants “Safe Access” to cannabis and will not settle for anything less than lifting the cannabis bans once and for all! See everyone in next years parade!!

Oceanside for a Safer Community was a committee formed by a group of concerned patients, parents, residents, community leaders and business owners advocating the value, acceptance, and inclusion of both medical and adult use cannabis in Oceanside. Our mission has expanded over the years and our focus has been lifted to include more categories of concern in our efforts to advance Oceanside residents quality of life.
