Public Comment To Be Cut From Oakland Pot Farm Permiting

The Oakland City Council is planning on cutting public comment out of its historic plan to permit the country’s first licensed medical cannabis farms. During its Tuesday meeting, councilmembers said they prefer that public comment on potential permitees occur only after the council had selected who would get the city’s coveted permits. Typically, neighbors and other citizens speak before local government issues permits for all types of development.
