Commercial Medical Marijuana Permitting

The Commercial Medical Marijuana Land Use Ordinance recently adopted by the Board of Supervisors becomes effective Friday, February 26, 2016. This is the date the Planning and Building Department will begin accepting applications for projects in the Inland Zone.  Applications for projects located in the Coastal Zone are not accepted at this time. The ordinance has not yet been certified by the California Coastal Commission. 

Thank you in advance for your support and patience as we work together to pioneer this new area of law.
