Friday Must Read: Berkeley Puts Its Pot Farms on Hold, Too; Quan Announces Return of Community Policing Officers

Stories you shouldn’t miss:

1. Berkeley city officials have decided to table their plans to permit six large medical cannabis growing facilities in light of questions raised by the county DA about Oakland’s proposed pot farms, the Berkeley Voice reports. In November, Berkeley voters approved plans for the pot farms, but city officials are concerned because they’re very similar to Oakland’s. District Attorney Nancy O’Malley raised questions last month about Oakland’s proposal because the pot farms would be separate businesses from the city’s medical cannabis dispensaries, a possible violation of state law. Berkeley’s plan would set up the same scenario. In addition, there appear to be no available spaces for the large pot farms in Berkeley either.
