CA Cities Bringing Cannabis Growing Into The Light
Cannabis growing even in a state like California is something that has remained in the shadows but that is going to have to change if legalization is ever to become a reality. There are cities in northern CA that are working to bring cannabis growing out into the open, like Oakland, Berkeley, and Eureka. On Monday, Oakland will begin the application process for four permits to run industrial scale marijuana farms within city limits. In Berkeley, a successful ballot measure to allow medical pot cultivation in industrial zones has would-be growers scrambling to score scarce real estate. Farther north, the Sonoma County wine country town of Sebastopol passed an ordinance Tuesday allowing for the creation of two large gardens for medical marijuana dispensaries, and two more “collective” gardens where patients could grow their own.
As can be imagined, the DEA is keeping a close eye on the situation but to what end remains to be seen. Oakland City Council member Rebecca Kaplan, who co sponsored that city’s cultivation ordinance, said the DEA had contacted her office but only to request copies of the regulations and background materials. She said the agency advised her that they were conducting research into the ways various cities were handling medical marijuana regulation. This is truly a real milestone in American history and the battle to legalize marijuana so with this we are one step closer to full blown legalization but should the DEA get involved then of course we can never guarantee what could happen.
