ABSTRACT
The article discusses social and economic issues facing Santa Cruz, California. A ballot initiative instructing Santa Cruz police to make adult marijuana arrests their lowest priority was passed in November 2006. Ceil Cirillo, director of economic development for the city, says that the lack of commercial space is the biggest obstacle facing the city. The median price of houses in the city is $700,000, which is beyond the reach of average citizens.
