Cannabis business owners in Hesperia say they’ve spent thousands of dollars and years jumping through legal hoops to establish dispensaries only to face a potential threat that would halt their business plans.
The Hesperia Council on Tuesday will consider creating an ordinance to repeal the city’s entire commercial cannabis program, which was initially approved in March 2017.
The council will also consider prohibiting the renewal of existing cannabis dispensary delivery permits.
Existing dispensaries with valid permits would be allowed to continue operating under their existing permit until expiration when the permit will not be renewed.
The city only allows Type M-9, non-storefront retailers and delivery services, and only in the green zone. All other commercial cannabis activities are prohibited within the city limits.
