Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act – Informational Workshops

April 8, 2017

IMPERIAL COUNTY, Calif – The Imperial County Board of Supervisors will host a series of informational workshops to be held in three communities in the county to inform the public about recent changes in state law pertaining to the recreational use of marijuana that could potentially lead to new business developments in the county.

Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA), was approved by California voters in November 2016, which legalized the possession and use of marijuana for non-medical purposes for adults 21 and older and created a state regulatory framework for commercial activity surrounding recreational marijuana, including but not limited to, cultivation, manufacturing and distribution.

The Board is seeking the public’s input and comments at these informational workshops about the potential methods of local implementation for this statewide voter-approved law as the Board explores potential rules and ordinances that they may develop. The Board encourages the public to attend one or more of the workshops listed above.

For more information, contact the County Executive Office at (442) 265-1001.
