California voters last November approved Proposition 64, making it most populous state in the nation to legalize the recreational use of marijuana, and the largest market for marijuana products in the U.S.
To address the changes brought with the legalization of marijuana, the Town of Truckee Town Council will be holding a series of workshops to discuss the Town’s approach to marijuana regulations.
The focus of these workshops will include discussions on indoor and outdoor cultivation, manufacturing and processing, taxation, retail and commercial uses and delivery services. Do we want to allow retail dispensaries in the town of Truckee? If so, where should they be located and what should they look and feel like? Do we want to impose a local tax on the sale of medical and nonmedical marijuana? If so, how much should it be and what could those revenues be used to fund?
These workshops are open to the public and opportunities to submit public comment will be made available. Consider weighing in on this topic and being a part of the Town’s decision making for our future. Once the workshops are wrapped up, Town staff will be working with the Planning Commission and Town Council—all during public hearings—to craft regulations addressing the legalization of marijuana.
Workshops will be held on the following dates in Town Hall Council Chambers (10183 Truckee Airport Road, Truckee, CA) from 6-8pm:
- Retail Dispensaries
- Processing Facilities
- Delivery Services
- Residential Cultivation
- Commercial Cultivation
- Personal Use and Possession
