LB Planning Commission to Review Medical Marijuana Law
On Aug. 21, the Long Beach Planning Commission will view a new, draft, medical marijuana ordinance.
The ordinance would allow a limited number of collectives with zoning to prevent locations from being concentrated in the industrial zones of west, north and central Long Beach.
Long Beach City Council members prefer industrial areas. The council wants allow for two locations per district and no more than 18 places citywide.
Commissioners would like to look to place collectives in industrial areas and if those zones are unavailable, progress to regional-highway districts and then community-oriented highway districts. This year, the Planning Commission has considered law versions that combine licensing requirements, buffers and other standards to control marijuana operations
In April, voters approved a measure allowing Long Beach to tax medical marijuana sales and businesses if the city rescinds its ban and adopts new regulatory rules.
