Cannabis create government waste on health care systems.

“According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, for every taxed in the recreational cannabis industry, there is of public health expenditure,” said Ellen Lee Zhou.

“Reviving those who overdose, or related issues costs ,000-,000 a day per person. Every dollar is taxpayers’ money. Adult cannabis users should take responsibility for themselves and not waste taxpayers’ money. Our public health system has huge expenditures. We work hard to regulate smoking cigarettes, but legalized cannabis use, this is extremely unethical.”

The current city government and Board of Supervisors allowed cannabis stores to open right next to day care schools – this is very sad. I had raised signs to call on the federal government to target San Francisco recreational cannabis stores and participated in various public hearings to oppose recreational cannabis next to any facility that cater minors under 18 years old.

I was nominated to run for San Francisco mayor by the anti-marijuana, San Francisco Coalition for Good Neighborhoods, to be a voice for the people, against cannabis. This is why I am running for mayor. Please vote Ellen Lee Zhou for Mayor to keep drugs away from San Francisco communities.


Nonpartisan Candidate, Ellen Lee Zhou

Political views:

San Francisco is heading towards the wrong direction. If I am elected mayor, I will lead San Francisco in the right direction, return ethics to City Hall, and bring back American values.

I aim to be a nonpartisan public servant with integrity. I will adhere to justice and compassion in order to create win-win policies for San Francisco residents, and rebuild a better San Francisco.

Political Standpoints:

No on legalization of marijuana
No on criminal protection under sanctuary law
No on unfair laws targeting small property owners
No on AB1726 Data Disaggregation Bill (separation categorization of Asian groups) and SCA5 (affirmative action).

Values ethics; promises to allow federal agents to execute federal laws to arrest criminals; supports increasing affordable housing tenfold; against tax increase; increase business opportunities; supports enforcing federal law, and working with federal agents; aims to have open and transparent government. Promises to give back 50% of mayor’s salary in service of residents in each district.


As a psychiatric social worker, Ellen Lee Zhou knows well the consequences of marijuana abuse. It pains her to hear that the San Francisco government approved legalization of recreational marijuana. She realized that in order to heal people, their hearts needed to be healed. Only by returning ethics to San Francisco, will there be hope. After actively leading the San Francisco citizen protests against marijuana, District 11’s San Francisco Coalition for Good Neighborhoods nominated her to run for mayor. She advocates for social justice and citizen rights.
