The Calaveras County Board of Supervisors told employees to start prepping a new MJ regulatory ordinance that represents a “180-degree turn” from the county’s prior position on industrial cannabis grows, according to The Union Democrat of Sonora.
3 of the county’s 5 supervisors favored moving forward on a new ordinance, the Sonora newspaper reported, in a dramatic shift that quite a few county farmers had been hoping for just after the November election in which two anti-cannabis board members had been unseated.
The supervisors on Tuesday discussed “how substantial grows could be, what growers will be permitted to apply and permitting processes” with county employees, The Union Democrat reported.
But information on a certain ordinance have however to emerge.
Calaveras farmers final year filed a class action lawsuit against the county, demanding the return of additional than $16 million in taxes and costs they had paid prior to the cultivation ban was enacted. Then, final month, county officials decided to refund roughly $1 million in costs to growers.
