California, for example, is home to the Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton and Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego County, Edwards Air Force Base near Los Angeles, Barstow’s Fort Irwin and Naval Base San Diego. Together, they give the Golden State one of the largest military populations in the country. But California’s marijuana laws don’t seem dependent on military concentrations. Some military-heavy areas are, in fact, more cannabis-friendly than surrounding areas. The City of San Diego houses more military personnel than San Diego County, but while the city proper welcomes cannabis, San Diego County Supervisors banned it in unincorporated areas. On the other hand, both Dale Gieringer of California NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) and San Diego cannabis business attorney Gina Austin pointed to Oceanside, near Camp Pendleton, as the only California community that comes close to mirroring Colorado Springs. Oceanside passed a resolution against their state’s Proposition 64, which legalized recreational pot, three months before the 2016 vote, but unlike Colorado Springs the military didn’t play a major role in their debate. After Prop 64 passed, Oceanside’s city council, having banned retail marijuana, went further, unanimously voting to extend a ban on medical marijuana dispensaries. Just to the north, Washington doesn’t let the military detract from cannabis at all, due to a combination of statute and cultural acceptance of marijuana. Washington’s Joint Base Lewis-McChord is the largest military installation in the western U.S.
