The Riverside County Board of Supervisors approved a plan to change its ordinances regarding the legality of cannabis. The immediate changes will be consistent with Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, approved last November.
However, these changes are intended to “… maintain the status quo and avoid the state issuing licenses for cannabis businesses and cannabis activities in the unincorporated areas.”
The key event to the legalization of these activities in the Riverside County will be a vote in November 2018 on imposing a tax on marijuana or cannabis.
Following its March 21 workshop, the board’s Cannabis ad hoc committee, composed of Supervisors Chuck Washington (District 3) and Kevin Jeffries (District 1), has drafted a plan to modify existing ordinances and to impose new taxes in order to change the regulatory environment in the county for marijuana or cannabis businesses.
