Eye-opening results to pot survey in Pleasant Hill

PLEASANT HILL — Although only 243 people took a recent online survey, the results indicate that some Pleasant Hill residents may not be ready to embrace marijuana.
Nearly 63 percent of respondents to the non-scientific survey said the city should not allow commercial marijuana cultivation or retail sales of recreational pot. Respondents narrowly favor repealing the city’s decade-long ban on medical marijuana dispensaries by 51 to 49 percent.
