Cannabis Regulation Scheduled for May 30, 2018

Posted on May 24, 2018

Sonoma City Council is expected to make their decision regarding what regulations and what cannabis businesses to allow or prohibit in Sonoma City limits at the City Council Meeting scheduled for May 30, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. in Council Chambers at 177 First Street West, Sonoma California.

The Sonoma City Council has taken a series of actions establishing interim moratoria on indoor and outdoor cultivation of medicinal and adult use cannabis (except as described under Personal Cultivation), as well as on other commercial cannabis activities within City limits.  Within the current moratoria, medicinal cannabis deliveries are allowed from licensed dispensaries located outside of City limits based on interim regulations.

The City Council also provided direction to staff regarding the development of permanent regulations, including exploring potential options for allowing a medicinal dispensary within the City, as well as testing and manufacturing facilities.  The City of Sonoma hosted two Town Hall meetings on March 28, 2018 and April 11, 2018 for members of the community to learn about potential cannabis regulation and cannabis business options under consideration for the City of Sonoma. If you missed the Town Halls, you can watch the recording of the Town Halls, read about background, access cannabis regulation documents, and learn about currently allowable activities in City limits on the City’s Cannabis Regulation page.  Options and information has been researched and staff is now returning to the City Council for possible action/implementation.

Public input on this policy decision is important to the City Council as they make their decision. Please submit any comments for the City Council to consider by emailing
