City Council to Consider Marijuana Regulations

Post Date:10/04/2019 4:20 PM

The City of Sausalito currently regulates marijuana within its borders through an interim urgency ordinance that was adopted by the City Council in November 2017. The interim ordinance has been extended twice since it was adopted and will expire on November 24, 2019. At its meeting on Tuesday, October 8, the Council will consider making the interim ordinance a permanent part of the Sausalito Municipal Code.

Under the interim ordinance, the following regulations are in place:
  • Delivery of marijuana by registered businesses operating outside of Sausalito is allowed
  • Storefront retail and other marijuana businesses are prohibited
  • Indoor marijuana cultivation for personal use is restricted to six or fewer adult plants
  • Outdoor marijuana cultivation is prohibited
Making the regulations in the interim ordinance permanent would not preclude the City Council from amending the ordinance at a later date. Among changes previously discussed by the Council include the possibility of allowing non-storefront marijuana businesses.

If the City Council votes to move forward with the permanent ordinance on October 8, a second reading and a vote on adoption would be scheduled for October 22. If adopted, the ordinance would go into effect after 30 days.

Any questions or comments about marijuana regulations in Sausalito may be directed to Senior Planner Calvin Chan at cchan@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4129.
