OAK’s Pot Farm Regs Win In Extra Innings

Oakland’s historic pot farm regulations passed 5-2-1 at 11:27 p.m. Tuesday night after a heated three-hour hearing featuring over 100 requests from the public to make comment. The city wants to permit four large-scale medical cannabis farms of unlimited size which could grow up to 20 percent of the state’s crop and net the broke city about $38 million in annual cultivation taxes. The second reading and vote on the ordinance occurs Tuesday, July 27.
