ORANGE COUNTY

 

Title:  Orange County takes a step toward banning pot sales and distribution in unincorporated areas

Author: LA Times

Date:  15 November 2017

URL:   http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-pot-ban-20171115-story.html

Extract:   The Orange County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday gave preliminary approval to an ordinance banning marijuana sales, distribution and cultivation in unincorporated parts of the county.

Orange County Supervisor Shawn Nelson cast the lone dissenting vote. He argued the board was ignoring the will of the voters, who approved the decriminalization of marijuana last year with Proposition 64

 

SAN FRANCISCO

 

Title: San Francisco Almost Certainly Won’t Be Selling Cannabis on Jan. 1

Author: Leafly

Extract: The San Francisco Board of Supervisors failed to come to terms on regulations for the nascent industry at a meeting Tuesday. Amid criticism and controversy—and bowing at least in part to pressure from vocal neighborhood activists opposed to retail sales—the lawmakers elected to delay further discussion of cannabis rules for two weeks, until Nov. 28.

The move means San Francisco will almost certainly be sitting on the runway Jan. 1, when California’s first state-licensed cannabis stores open for business.

“It’s embarrassing that we probably won’t be ready on Jan. 1,” state Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) told Leafly.

 

TUOLUMNE COUNTY

Title: Tuolumne County supervisors opt for tougher restrictions on cannabis

Author: The Union Democrat

Date: 14 November 2017

URL: http://www.uniondemocrat.com/localnews/5752435-151/tuolumne-county-supervisors-opt-for-tougher-restrictions-on

Extract:  After more than four hours of discussion and debate at the Sonora Opera Hall Tuesday, the Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 to draft an ordinance that will be stricter on growing cannabis for personal use than what was previously recommended.

Under the new proposal, people who reside on less than one acre of land would be unable to grow marijuana outdoors for medical or recreational personal use. All residents would be allowed to grow the statewide maximum of six plants regardless of size of their parcel.

More than 200 people attended the special meeting, but about 50 remained by the time the vote was taken. The board has likely spent more time deliberating cannabis than any other single issue of the past two years.

 

YOLO COUNTY

Title: Yolo County Asks For Help Cultivating Marijuana Rules

Author: Capital Public Radio

Date: 14 November 2017

URL: http://www.capradio.org/articles/2017/11/14/county-asks-for-help-cultivating-marijuana-rules/

Extract: Even though California voters approved recreational marijuana last fall, many cities and counties, like Yolo, don’t have laws regarding who can grow pot and where.

Yolo County says people are growing weed all over the unincorporated areas, even though there is no ordinance that allows it.

A series of community meetings are being held this month to gather ideas for the county’s new cultivation and processing rules.
