As happy as we have been with the the draft EIR as a whole, it has a few blind spots and contains at least one critical issue that if not resolved will exclude most sites from obtaining a local license.

This Sunday 4-6pm at the Felton Community Hall (6191 Hwy 9) CAA will be co-hosting a Final EIR Comment Drive, Focusing on; F1 fire designation, nursery and seed maker specific issues, distribution, cottage cultivation and environmental best practices.

We will also be discussing our recommendations for a truly inclusive county ordinance.

Thank you and hope to see everyone Sunday!

§Critical Cannabis Advocacy Workshop This Sunday
by Pat and Jim Friday Oct 20th, 2017 11:51 AM
Hello,

This Sunday, Oct 22, 4 to 6 PM at the Felton Community Hall, GreenTrade along with CAA, SCM2 and other cannabis advocates are co-hosting a workshop to assist people in submitting comments to the Draft Environmental Impact Report. There are ten days left to submit comments in writing.

We will also discuss tax issues and what will be the GreenTrade recommendations to the Board of Supervisors who will consider a report from county staff on the Cannabis Business Tax as well as some amendments to the ordinances governing personal use and retail adult use at their meeting this Tuesday.

Items 34-36 are scheduled to be taken up around 1PM; you can review them here:

http://santacruzcountyca.iqm2.com/Citizens/Detail_Meeting.aspx?ID=1596

This should be an “all hands on deck” meeting, please plan on attending in person or commenting in writing (delivered to the County Clerk by Monday) or via email using the link above and then clicking on the agenda item (#36 is the tax report).

There are 72 days (and counting down) until the world’s largest cannabis market becomes regulated. Perhaps as few as 45 days until State license applications are available (“early December”) and even fewer until the state regulations are published (“mid to late November”). More info, including a countdown clock, can be found here: http://cannabis.ca.gov/

It is more important than ever that businesses intending to seek state licenses stay informed and involved. Please, if you have not already made your commitment to join GreenTrade do so this week and indicate if you wish to be considered for nomination to the Board of Directors or if you want to recommend someone by filling out this short form: https://goo.gl/forms/HB6mZOpCMt2zeU9I3

Thanks

Pat and Jim
