On November 8, 2016, Proposition 64 (legalization of recreational marijuana) was voted into law by the people of the State of California. Many aspects of the law take effect immediately, and some elements of the law are subject to local control and discretion. The Town Council took immediate action and adopted two ordinances with respect to cultivation of recreational marijuana within Town limits, at their meeting of November 16, 2016. This action allows the Town more time to study impacts to public health and safety, neighborhood crime and security,
odor control and neighborhood livability.
