The non-retail cannabis businesses within the unincorporated County are regulated by three (3) different sections within the County Code. Chapter 7.128 serves to establish operational restrictions and a cannabis licensing program. Amendments to Chapter 13.10 establish zoning and land use permitting restrictions and amendments to Chapter 16.01 relate to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Additional requirements are included in the Best Management and Operational Practices Plan. These regulations work in tandem to determine eligibility and operational restrictions for non-retail cannabis businesses.
