The first of several workshops around the City to address safe and legal access to cannabis will be held on Wednesday, September 6, 5:30 – 7 p.m. in Councilmember Eric Guerra’s district. A presentation will begin at 5:45 p.m. at the George Sim Community Center, 6207 Logan Street. See flyer.

We are here to help residents know the law. What’s legal to grow and possess. Also, what’s the path to a legal cultivation, manufacturing, or testing business? What do illegal “grow houses” look like? There are 1,000 such grow houses in City neighborhoods right now,” said Joe Devlin, Manager of the Office of Cannabis Police and Enforcement.

Workshops like this one as well as meetings for those interested in starting a small cannabis business will be held throughout the next few months. The City will be promoting dates and times. Also, please see the City’s marijuana information pages.

What’s the difference between an illegal and legal marijuana operation? A safe and inspected industrial business versus a home full of code violations and hazards operating in a neighborhood. See the photos of each.
