Last Friday Fresno City Councilmembers Esmeralda Soria and Miguel Arias issued a press release announcing that they had agreed to terms that would finally allow California’s largest municipality without legal dispensary service to begin taxing and regulating its very popular cannabis industry.
- A compromise came once the proposed plan included new language allowing licenses to change hands annually, during the renewal process. Also at issue was surveillance footage restrictions.
- This week Contra Costa County announced that it will instantly wipe out 3,264 cannabis convictions, all identified by Code for America.
