A complete ban of cannabis businesses in Kern County went into effect on Friday, except for the free towns of California City and Arvin. The law firm Harris Bricken has filed an appeal claiming that Kern County shows “disregard for the will of the voters” in not providing residents an opportunity to overturn its REC ban. Meanwhile, delivery services became legal in Bakersfield this week.

The Californian / Bakersfield Now
- In 2017 Bakersfield banned all commercial activity, which the local illicit market quite enjoyed. The ban excluded businesses based in cities where the plant is legal.
- Brian Hayek of California City’s Driven Deliveries said he intends to meet with Bakersfield residents, politicians, and cops. It’s possible that on his tour Hayek will set the record for uttering the word “compliant.”
- And for good reason. With demand for bud spiking before Kern’s MED dispensaries closed their doors, indications are that Driven Deliveries will be in wild demand.
