City to host a series of workshops to address safe and legal access to cannabis

Workshops are designed to help residents understand what one can and cannot do under Prop 64 and the City's cannabis regulations

August 31, 2017

The first of several workshops around the City to address safe and legal access to cannabis will be held on Wednesday, September 6, 5:30 - 7 p.m. in Councilmember Eric Guerra's district. A presentation will begin at 5:45 p.m. at the George Sim Community Center, 6207 Logan Street. The workshop is an opportunity for citizens to have many questions answered such as: What's a legal cultivation site look light? How will the City address illegal grow houses? Can anyone use marijuana now anywhere? Are there job opportunities in the cannabis business?

The Office of Cannabis Policy and Enforcement will provide an overview of current state and City regulations for establishing a cannabis business.

City Residents are encouraged to stop by one of the workshops to learn more about the process. Workshops will be held at the following districts with more to be scheduled soon:

  • District 6 - Wednesday, Sept. 6 at 5:30 p.m. Located at the George Sim Community Center, Multi-Purpose Room (6207 Logan Street)
