WHO: El Dorado County ad hoc cannabis committee (Dist. V Supervisor Sue Novasel, Dist. I Supervisor John Hidahl)
BACKGROUND: In November 2018, El Dorado County residents passed five cannabis-related measures related to indoor and outdoor cultivation of cannabis for adult recreational use and medicinal use. The County has six months from the certification of the election results (December 4, 2018) to develop the programs that proved the discretionary permitting process and other administrative procedures. This timeline may be extended to account for unforeseen circumstances, changes in state or federal law or lack of sufficient funding. These meetings are the first in a series to develop the County's cannabis programs.
