The Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors is considering a new cannabis cultivation ordinance today at 1:30 pm, at 701 Ocean Street on the 5th floor.

Here is a message from local attorney Trevor Luxon:

The Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors is meeting to evaluate a draft set of regulations which would create a cannabis cultivation licensing program for the County. The draft contains many provisions that if passed, will result in the elimination through license denial of a huge portion of the cultivators in the County.

I've attached a chart summarizing the basic provisions of the ordinance. Things I see as problematic are the County's use of the Coastal Zone and area within a mile of it to eliminate a huge portion of the County from potential cultivation, and the amount of power given to the licensing official to approve or deny applications with virtually no oversight.

If you find these regulations unacceptable, contact your Supervisor or come to the Board of Supervisors meeting (5th floor of the County Building at 701 Ocean St). Contact me with questions.

All the best,
Trevor
