Nonmedical Cannabis Ordinance

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 1/31/2017


No earlier than 1:30 p.m., the Board will conduct a first reading of an ordinance to prohibit nonmedical cannabis activity in unincorporated areas of Marin County. After an extensive review of new California law, the Community Development Agency is recommending a ban to give the County time to consider implications of potentially authorizing nonmedical cannabis businesses before state licenses can be granted and to learn from the licensing program for medical cannabis dispensaries that is currently underway. Staff recommends that the Board schedule merit hearing for 1:30 p.m. February 7.


The Board conducted the first reading and scheduled the merit hearing for 1:30 p.m. February 7.
