Cannabis cultivation drop-in meetings with Placer cannabis inspectors set for May

Auburn, CA - With Placer County's cannabis ordinance now in effect for over a year, county staff will host three drop-in meetings in May to answer questions about rules for cannabis cultivation and the county's compliance and enforcement process.

Members of the community who are interested in or are currently cultivating cannabis are invited to meet with Placer County Code Compliance Office cannabis inspectors who will be on-hand to answer questions about the rules and regulations for cannabis cultivation.

"Our first year of cannabis cultivation compliance and enforcement in Placer was very successful," said Placer County Chief Building Official Tim Wegner. "These drop-in meetings with cannabis inspectors are a great way to help ensure cultivators are well informed and stay in compliance with the cannabis ordinance."

Placer's cannabis ordinance, allowing limited cultivation for personal use only, became effective January 2017.

The ordinance is consistent with the 1996 Proposition 215 Compassionate Use Act, 2015 Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act and the Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act, also known as Proposition 64. It allows cultivation of up to six non-medical plants on 50 square feet or cultivation of 50 square feet of medical cannabis for personal use, but bans all commercial activity related to cannabis including cultivation, processing, manufacturing, delivery and distribution.

Placer County's Code Compliance Office is mainly responsible for enforcing the ordinance, with fines for non-compliance ranging from $500 per plant over the six plant limit up to $5,000 a day for commercial activities including cultivation, manufacture or distribution.
