Med pot shops could sell recreational marijuana under proposal
Published on Dec 7, 2016
Last month, California voters passed Proposition 64 legalizing recreational marijuana for adults 21 and up, but you won't see a recreational dispensary for a long while. San Diego legislators just announced their proposal to allow the 15 medical marijuana shops to also sell recreational marijuana once recreational marijuana licenses are issued in January 2018. If passed, the proposal would restrict business signs to only alphabetical characters, no images or logos. It would restrict marijuana grows to secured green houses only, and it would also permit specific retailers to be able to deliver marijuana.
Proposition 64 made it legal for individuals to use and grow marijuana for personal use on Nov. 9. But the sale and subsequent taxation of recreational marijuana will not go into effect until Jan. 1, 2018, because that’s when state licenses needed to sell it will take effect.
The revised regulations would also prohibit the cultivation of marijuana and the outdoor growing of residential marijuana, but cultivation in secured greenhouses would be allowed
