Pot Ordinance Deadline Extension Clears Committee

A bill that would extend the deadline for cities and counties to enact a medical marijuana ordinance has cleared another hurdle. Assembly Bill 21 passed out of the Senate Health Committee this afternoon and is now headed to the Senate floor. An exact date hasn’t been set yet but a committee official says it will likely be sometime next week. Currently, local governments like the Grass Valley and Nevada City City Councils, and Nevada County Board of Supervisors have until March first to establish a local ordinance or be subject to whatever state law regulating medical marijuana turns out to be. A-B 21 would remove the March 1 deadline from state marijuana licensing provisions.
