Cathedral City Approves Medical Pot Cultivation
Marijuana propagation, cultivation and other aspects of medical cannabis manufacturing will be allowed in Cathedral City, a move that follows a similar policy change in Desert Hot Springs. City Council approved several changes to the city's medical marijuana ordinance Wednesday to allow cannabis manufacturing in light industrial zones. (Descant, 4/27)
The Ventura County Star:
Fillmore May Allow Cultivation, Sale And Delivery Of Marijuana
Fillmore could allow the cultivation, sale and delivery of medical marijuana, after the City Council voted Tuesday night to reconsider the ban it passed three months ago. The Fillmore City Council, along with councils all over Ventura County, banned growing or selling medical marijuana because state law gave them a March 1 deadline, after which the state could start licensing growers and sellers in cities that hadn't passed their own rules. But the state lifted that deadline before it took effect. (Biasotti, 4/27)
