Humboldt County Approves First Commercial Cannabis Farms
Northern California’s traditional cannabis heartland, Humboldt County, gave an official go-ahead for two commercial medical marijuana farms to open this summer, the Eureka Times-Standard reports. The two operations are Honeydew Farms, a seven-acre outdoor grow in the town of Honeydew, and a quarter-acre “mixed-light” farm run by Blessed Coast LLC in Carlotta. These are the first such enterprises in the county, “marking the beginning of a new era for the industry.”
About 100 more such businesses have submitted applications to the county, and county senior planner Steve Lazar said he expects hundreds more in the coming months. He called the applications the “first end of big wave” that is about to crest. Applications are being made under a regulatory program approved by the county in January, complimenting California’s Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA), which creates a statewide licensing program expected to start in 2018. Under the law, operators must hold both a local and state license.

The DEA Just Asked The Feds to Grow 1,000 Pounds of Weed Next Year
Although much of the cannabis community has been waiting on bended knee, for the past few months, to learn whether the U.S Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will downgrade the Schedule I classification of the cannabis plant, a recent report over the agency’s proposed cultivation quota for 2017 suggests that no changes will likely be made in the near future.
It seems that the US government’s leading drug controls are planning to produce around 1,041 pounds of research cannabis next year, slightly less than the 1,451 pounds slated for cultivation in 2016, according to Marijuana.com.
L.A. County likely to scrap proposed marijuana tax for homeless services
Less than two weeks after voting to pursue a tax on marijuana businesses to help pay for housing and health services for the homeless, Los Angeles County supervisors appear poised to pull the measure from the November ballot.
County officials debated several potential tax measures to fund expanded efforts to reduce homelessness in the county, including a “millionaires tax” on high-income earners, a sales tax and a property tax, but those proposals ran into roadblocks or failed to get the needed level of support on the board.
