The California Marijuana Legalization Initiative (Proposition 64) was passed statewide on November 8, 2016. Kern County is currently considering how to manage commercial and personal use of medicinal and recreational cannabis in unincorporated county.
The Kern County Planning and Natural Resources Department has prepared two options to present to the Kern County Board of Supervisors in October:
|A.||Ban all activities except those covered by
Proposition 64, or
|B.||Update standards and conditions for potential
commercial activities, such as cultivation, processing
and sale of cannabis products.
Kern County has released a Draft EIR that addresses both options. This is the first EIR on cannabis done by a city or county anywhere in California.
Lorelei Oviatt, AICP, Director of the Kern County Planning and Natural Resources Department, will discuss how this project started, how it has progressed, and what each option could mean for Kern County.
