A City of Imperial Beach Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Act also known by supporters as the Compassionate Access Ordinance did not make the June 3, 2014 election ballot for voters in the city of Imperial Beach in San Diego County, California.

Marcus Boyd proposed and collected signatures for this measure to allow a medical marijuana dispensary to open in Imperial Beach. The measure is similar to 2012 Proposition S, known as the "Safe Access Ordinance", which was authored by Marcus Boyd and rejected by voters in a 58% - 42% race. Boyd tried again in 2014, but with slight changes that Boyd thought would make the measure more acceptable to voters the second time around. Boyd said, "The allowance to use on site is going to be removed, we're going to limit the dispensary to city of IB residents only." The new measure also would have reduced hours of operation and restricted potential locations to eliminate the possibility of a dispensary opening near the beach.[1]

Support

Marcus Boyd was the chief petitioner for the "Compassionate Access Ordinance."

The same proponents that worked to support Proposition S were active again in 2014, including the Yes on S campaign.[2]

Path to the ballot

The petition was circulated and, according to reports, signatures were set to be submitted to the Imperial Beach City Clerk sometime in the month of December, 2013. The measure needed approximately 1,000 valid signatures - which amounts to 10% of the city's registered voters - to qualify for the ballot. The measure never appeared on the ballot.[1]
