Homer Opening it's City to Tourists for Cannabis??

Homer Officials are considering to allow the retail sale of cannabis to increase it's city revenue.  Like everyone in the industry the sale of cannabis and legalization of this allows the increase in jobs and lowers the need for police to handle more serious matters.  The City of Homer will introduce Wednesday an ordinance that will start the gears moving for the retail side to open up.

There are mixed reviews on the issue within the council due to large portion of federal funding goes into the expansion of the harbor.  However if that could be mitigated by the possible funding from the sale tax of cannabis and increased flow of tourists. What would the downside be?
