Williams discusses upcoming Cannabis Town Hall
December 15, 2020 — The cannabis ordinance has been a puzzle for years: how to move cultivators through the county permit process and on to a state license, which will be required as of January first, 2022? The state requires site-specific CEQA review for every grow, which the county does not. State agencies and the county are short on staff, and there are over a
thousand cultivators waiting in the queue to get their county permits.
The Board of Supervisors formed an ad hoc committee, consisting of Supervisors Ted Williams and John Haschak, to figure out how to fit the state and county pieces together. They’re hosting a virtual town hall tomorrow afternoon, Wednesday, December 16, at 4:00, to try and catch everyone up on the latest information.
The meeting will be available on the county's YouTube channel and Facebook page, and also on zoom, which people can log into by phone or on the computer.
