Ventura County To Look At Guidelines For Marijuana Sales, Cultivation


Ventura County is looking at taking a cautious approach to marijuana sales and cultivation in unincorporated parts of the county.

It’s an issue facing cities and counties throughout the Central and South Coast, after voters approved the liberalization of marijuana in the state.

Ventura County’s Resource Management Agency has developed some proposed guidelines at the request of County Supervisors. The proposals include limiting dispensaries to two in any given area, restricting hours to 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and giving preference to local ownership.

Supervisors are set to look at the issue Tuesday afternoon.
