CA cities pass temporary bans, controls on rec cannabis
California cities across the Bay Area and the state are scrambling to impose temporary bans and controls on recreational cannabis ahead of Tuesday’s statewide vote on legalizing adult-use marijuana.
Polls show the state favors legalization. Cities, in response, are taking preemptive moves. San Jose is considering adopting an emergency ordinance to ban the use of non-medical marijuana, a move intended to give local officials time to decide whether and how to regulate adult-use cannabis, according to the Mercury News.
The law would also prohibit commercial cultivation, processing, manufacturing, distributing, testing and selling of recreational cannabis.
