Draft Medical Cannabis Dispensary Ordinance

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 10/20/2015


No earlier than 1:30 p.m., the Board will hear the first reading of an ordinance to license medical cannabis dispensaries in unincorporated Marin County. The draft ordinance was discussed by the Board on June 9, and staff heard public and Board comments about recommended changes. The ordinance would limit the number of dispensaries to four locations within unincorporated Marin – no more than two in the highly populated Highway 101 corridor and no more than two in the more rural central and western parts of the county. Staff recommends scheduling a merit hearing for 1:30 p.m. December 8.


The Board heard a staff report from the Community Development Agency and Counsel Counsel's Office, then public testimony. The Board took no action, recommended revisions to the ordinance and asked that the first reading be rescheduled for November 10.
