Extract:  COSTA MESA The city will keep its ban on marijuana use for another year, even as recreational marijuana use has become legalized in California and other cities are scrambling to update their policies before sales begin Jan. 1.

The City Council’s 5-0 vote on Tuesday, Nov. 21 extends an “emergency ordinance” that will keep the status quo regulations prohibiting marijuana uses allowed under state law.

The ordinance was originally passed in January and extended for just over a 10-month period in February. The latest and final extension expires on Dec. 22, 2018.

Extract: The fate of commercial marijuana operations in Half Moon Bay could end back up in the laps of voters.

The city has been considering whether to allow pot businesses, particularly greenhouse commercial cultivation, in the coastal community after Proposition 64’s landmark legalization of recreational marijuana in California.

Surrounded by the tech boom of Silicon Valley where redevelopment pressures run hot, the city of Half Moon Bay and the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors have been discussing whether indoor marijuana grows could revive a struggling coastside agricultural industry.

Extract:  SLO County supervisors continue to hash out what will become the local rules for the emerging marijuana industry, with the board set to meet on Nov. 27 for the fifth time in less than two months to discuss a cannabis land-use ordinance.

The state released a set of regulations for the emerging marijuana industry on Nov. 16, but counties like San Luis Obispo are considering tighter restrictions, like a ban on outdoor cannabis grows for personal or caregiver use.

The latest draft of the policy sets tight restrictions on marijuana activities in SLO come Jan. 1, 2018, when Proposition 64 takes effect—per a “go slow” approach by supervisors John Peschong (1st District), Lynn Compton (4th District), and Debbie Arnold (5th District).

Those supervisors are in favor of making the 141 cannabis growers who successfully registered with the county last year as co-ops or collectives eligible to receive cultivation permits come 2018; banning both medical and adult-use storefront dispensaries in all unincorporated areas; and restricting personal and caregiver cultivation to six plants total per site (not per patient) and indoors only; among other restrictions, according to planning staff.

Thus far, the local rules have been crafted without fully knowing how the state would regulate the market.
