Come Talk About the New Cannabis Laws and Licensing Progam With Your Senator and Assemblyman
Senator Mike McGuire and Assemblymember Jim Wood are hosting a community forum in Redway next Friday to talk about the new cannabis regulations. They are inviting you to join them.
Assemblymember Jim Wood and I are proud to have worked together to pass the recently signed Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act – the strongest medical marijuana legislation package in the nation.
Voters passed Proposition 215 nearly twenty years ago and the promised regulations from the legislature weren’t advanced until last year. There are many changes in the works and we want to be sure the state is working proactively with residents over the next two years to ensure all are prepared and in the loop.
That’s why we are hosting a community forum to provide residents with an opportunity to hear how the new statewide regulations and license program will roll out over the next 24 months and how those new statewide rules will interact with the proposed Medical Marijuana ordinance being discussed in Humboldt County.
We want you to join us! Here are the details:
What: Community Forum on Medical Marijuana
When: Friday, January 29, 2016
Time: 4 to 7 p.m.

The forum will be co-hosted by Humboldt County Supervisor Estelle Fennell and an impressive list of panelists from state agencies, the County of Humboldt and industry experts who will be on hand to discuss the implementation of medical marijuana regulations.
Panelists include state representatives from the Department of Consumer Affairs, the Department of Food & Agriculture, the Department of Fish & Wildlife and the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board. From Humboldt County, panelists will represent the Planning Department, the Sheriff’s Office and the Agriculture Commissioner’s office.
This interactive forum will give residents a chance to hear directly from state agencies, county officials and members of the medical marijuana industry about how these new statewide rules and regulations will work for the North Coast.
Please join us on January 29 – and ask your neighbors to attend!
