At its hearing on December 6, 2016, the Board of Supervisors was presented a regulatory outline that could be used by County staff to develop specific Zoning Ordinance amendments governing the permitting of commercial medical cannabis businesses in the unincorporated area. The Board directed staff to refine the outline so that it reflects a "go slow" approach and reach out to stakeholders to obtain further input. In response, a revised Regulatory Outline has been developed and is now available for public review and comment. A copy of the revised proposed regulatory outline may be viewed here. This outline was presented to the Board of Supervisors on March 21, 2017. At that hearing the Board of Supervisors took no action. At this time, the matter is not scheduled for further review or hearings. Commercial medical cannabis activities continue to be prohibited within unincorporated Ventura County.
