Water regulated more than marijuana in Suisun Valley

Salubrious, a pot dispensary located and operating in rural Suisun Valley, is back open again while the sheriff’s deputies sit on their hands.

A recent unanimous Board of Supervisor decision reinforced the ban in unincorporated Solano County, which finally closed the business. Yet, here they are open again, disregarding zoning and business permitting processes.

Currently, there are two wineries with tasting rooms planning to open in rural Suisun Valley that cannot do so due to permit delays involving water and indecision on the part of the Board of Supervisors. After the closure of Ledgewood Creek winery and passing of the Suisun Valley Strategic Plan to promote tourism within the valley, one would think that elected officials would have their priorities right.

It seems not.

Fairfield doesn’t want pot dispensaries so the pressure goes to push them into a peaceful farming community that relies on fruit and vegetable produce along with family orientated events to promote itself.

As we go into elections, I say look hard and long at your incumbents but be careful because the owner of Salubrious is running for supervisor and the current sheriff doesn’t care.

    At least the cops aren't busting down your doors. I have not read any issues regarding Salubrious "Pot Dispensary". My feeling is that it has as much chance of attracting undesirables to its location, as the winery's do of attracting drunks. That is all we are talking about here. One is socially acceptable to Mr Richmond, while the other is regarded as "Pot", and shunned. How about you choose your poison, and I will choose mine. To bad Salubrious does not have tasting rooms. If they did, the winery's would have a run for their money. If it was me, I would join the two together, for a really great Suisun Valley experience.
