Oakland Tries Smaller, Closed-Loop Pot Farm Permits

Oakland’s pot farm permitting process is back again.

Today at 5:30 p.m. at Oakland City Hall, the Oakland City Council’s Public Safety Committee plans to conduct a public hearing and vote on a proposal that would double the number of dispensaries from four to eight, as well as amend Oakland’s embattled cultivation ordinance to make it compliant with state law.

Under the cultivation amendments, each permitted farm must be in a “closed loop,” growing medical cannabis for a specific dispensary. Farms must not exceed 25,000 square-feet per location, and grow no more than six mature plants per patient in the collective.
