Discussion on CalCo Cannabis Continues

Sponsored by:

Should medical marijuana dispensaries be allowed in Calaveras County, and if so, where?

That´s a question the Board of Supervisors will answer Monday.

The Planning Commission´s answer was no, saying there´s no right location for it.

The issue was prompted in September when Kim Cue of San Andreas applied to open a dispensary in San Andreas near the county surveyor and 4-H offices.

The county has no ordinance regulating such facilities. To buy time, supervisors passed a ban and later extended it so staff members could come up with an ordinance regulating such facilities.

That ordinance is complete and went to the Planning Commission Nov. 4, when Commissioner Mike Dell´Orto´s motion to approve the ordinance died for lack of a second.

Commissioners then recommended to supervisors the ordinance is not in the nest interest of Calaveras County residents since there´s no appropriate location for such use.
