Last week, the Bureau of Cannabis Control (Bureau) released its Local Jurisdiction Survey to cities and counties to obtain information about designated point of contacts, ordinances, and other pertinent information.  Stakeholders, including the California State Association of Counties and the League of California Cities, were involved with the creation of the survey. 

As part of the recent passage of Senate Bill 94 and Assembly Bill 133 – budget trailer bills that harmonize the medical cannabis and adult-use cannabis regulatory structure – local governments are required to submit their respective ordinances to the Bureau.  The completion of surveys by cities and counties will assist state cannabis licensing agencies to ensure that licenses that are issued are in compliance with all local ordinances and regulations.
