Commercial Cannabis Location Restriction Ordinance

June 9th, 2017
The Department of City Planning has prepared the proposed Commercial Cannabis Location Restriction Ordinance, which would establish location restrictions and a limited immunity from enforcement of specified City prohibitions relating to commercial cannabis activity.
