By Matthew Cole Scott Posted on December 14, 2016 Share Tweet Share Share Email Comments I donâ€™t think much will change, because pot is basically legal in Santa Cruz already. But I think dispensaries will make more money. Itâ€™s going to bring money from taxes instead of the black market. It will bring money for education and research and basically move the culture forward. It will be easier for new smokers who donâ€™t have their network already figured out to get it. Local growers will be screwed, but there will be more money for schools. Maybe more ticket fines for outdoor smoking.
