The following statement can be attributed to League of California Cities® Executive Director Carolyn Coleman:
“The League is disappointed with sections of the Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) regulations that ignore the voter’s intent and the plain language of Proposition 64.
“Voters approved Prop. 64 with the understanding that local authority to regulate cannabis in a way that is best for their communities would be preserved.
“Local government, labor and law enforcement informed BCC that its proposed regulations are clearly inconsistent with Prop. 64 and the will of the voters, and it’s therefore disappointing that OAL has allowed these questionable regulations to take effect. This decision puts the public safety needs of communities across the state at risk.”
Established in 1898, the League of California Cities is a nonprofit statewide association that advocates for cities with the state and federal governments and provides education and training services to elected and appointed city officials.
