March 27 BOS Meeting and Cannabis Taxes

The Board of Supervisors talked cannabis again at its March 27th meeting, when an item on the agenda called on the five elected officials to make decisions regarding putting a cannabis tax on the ballot for the November election.

However, the Alliance brought up once again the issue of having the CEQA required Environmental Impact Report delay the upcoming cannabis ordinance. Read our statement to the Board HERE. Although no action was taken by the Board, the Alliance will continue to advocate for different options that allows the county to claim the statutory exemption provided SB94  specifically for local jurisdictions implementing a cannabis program.
