Welcome to another week of California cannabis headlines. This week we have updates from Mendocino County, Whittier, Contra Costa County and Culver City.

  • Mendocino County discussed cannabis cultivation and compliance in their board of supervisors meeting. The city adopted an ordinance amending the cannabis business tax. In addition, they set limits on the cultivation of cannabis while the Department of Agriculture processes cannabis cultivation permits. Read the details in the new ordinance of Mendocino County.
  • Whittier held a city council meeting to revisit the idea of allowing medical marijuana dispensaries. If the motion to limit medical marijuana dispensaries proceeds, there will be a public hearing before the City’s Planning Commission. We’ll let you know if there are any updates.
