Calaveras County Cannabis Cultivation Ban Implementation

San Andreas, CA...The implementation of the commercial cannabis cultivation ban adopted by the Board of Supervisors in January 2018 is set to begin on Friday, March 9, 2018. The ordinance, which bans all commercial cannabis cultivation and limits and regulates personal cultivation of up to six plants (per State law), was posted in the paper on February 7, 2018, and under California law, takes effect 30 days after posting. Based on the provisions in the cannabis urgency ordinance and the ban, growers have 90 days from the effective date of the ban ordinance to come into compliance with the new law. All cultivation except for registered personal use, must cease after June 7, 2018.





During the 90-day period, the provisions of the urgency ordinance continue as referenced in the ban, and registered growers are able to continue cultivating. If a grower’s application was in pending status, the County will continue processing registration applications. Following the 90-day period, all cultivation areas must be restored or remediated as required by the ban ordinance by January 10, 2020. For example, any non-permitted grading or construction must be permitted or removed, trash and debris from the grow sites must be removed, and erosion control measures must be installed.

Questions regarding what is permissible during the 90-day period, what the requirements are for remediating a cultivation site, and what is allowable for a personal cannabis grow may be directed to the Calaveras County Planning Department. An FAQ list may also be found on the Planning Department’s cannabis website, https://cannabis.calaverasgov.us/.

Other inquires may be directed to the County PIO, Timothy Lutz, at 209-754-6025.

Calaveras geriatric County. Run by old people with no common sense. Let the bankrupting begin, housing prices set to plummet, businesses will all lose money. Ugh. Why not regulate and tax? The ban will never work.

    Why is it necessary to be so negative? Have something against older people? You will be one one day. Want people to snub their noses at you when you are over 65? Why is there an assumption that all retirees have their heads stuck in the sand?

    You do yourself no favors by posting this type of comment.
    And BTW . . . those who voted for the ban . . . non are geriatric. The GOP's in this county campaigned against growers and the GOP membership is not all geriatric. They are just ultra-conservative.

      They get two years to clean up the messes and destruction they caused??? That makes no sense. They can continue to cultivate for 90 days, plants won't be ready for harvest by then? Sounds a little goofy to me???

        What's really goofy is: between February 14th, yesterday, the date the Urgency Ordinance expired, and March 9th, when the new ban becomes law, we have no enforceable county ordinance. I suspect, guess that during these three weeks the operable law is state law, proposition 64? Anyone know about this?

    You are joking, right? The only growers that are going to leave are the ones that were trying to legitimize their operation. Do you think Al Capone minded prohibition? Course not, that is when he made real money. The Sheriff does not have the staffing to deal with these issues (it will get worse with the next budget...stay tuned for June budget hearings, they will be delightful) and despite what Kool Aide has been served no cadre of feds are on their way to help unless it is on federal land. Now the real "fun" begins and you can thank the BoS for listening to local Bozo's for direction. Calaveras is officially on record for the most backwards county in the USA.

Most of you so called "farmers". We're shipping on the black market, under the table so to speak and had no intentions about paying taxes! Raising and selling.dope isn't what I would call farming! Dope makes most users lazy and willing to settle for less, because enough use kills your motivation! Fact, not fiction. A lot of the local young people that I know that are in their 20's and 30's are willing to work washing dishes or taking orders at food places making 10.00 an hr. let e tell you, you will be 40, 50, 60 someday and you will have little money to retire on! Many of these young ones smoke pot and pot is more important to them than having goals to make more of their lives, so, my hope is that these so called "farmers" will be run out of town, we don't need you for our economy!

    The people you are talking about aren't the people who want regulation. Regulation means enforcing county taxes, business taxes, and employee rights and all the other aspects of operating a business in Calaveras County. The urgency ordinance created a structure to make sure cannabis businesses registered with the county and followed the law and the state regulations further ensure that from plant to sale, the laws of the state are followed. When I say, "regulate me" I am also saying: please tax me, please charge me fees so the employees of Calaveras can make sure I am following the laws, please make sure I withhold employee taxes and pay our business share and pay into insurance pools and PAY hardworking people in the county more then ten stupid dollars an hour so they can support their families. Why eliminate an entire industry that pays better, on a whole, than any other industry in the county?? SO WEIRD. So backwards. You know what a full time $10/ hour job gets you? Social services, med-ical for your kids, a hard life of poverty and working for someone else forever. Wise up to what a ban really means for this county. People who want to see regulation and the people who think they want a ban in many ways actual want the same things. Think about it. Regulate me.

      I’m a liberal, progressive registered Democrat.

      And I am 100% behind the commercial ban. I was born in Calaveras County.

      I don’t want our county to allow the same type of “farming” that corporate tobacco farms used to decimate the land and people of the Deep South of the United States. Low wages, poverty, massive corporate farms, environmental degradation, exacerbation of disease caused by fertilizers and insecticide runoff: these are the inevitable upshot of farming an intensely addictive substance worth a sh*t load of money.

      If you can’t see that, then I guess that YOU are just the typical intractable pot Nazi, incapable of considering anything other than money or the freedom to get a buzz as a measure of quality of life.

    We live inside of a nanny state thanks you to Jerry Brownsville and the worthless father of his. You gals and fellas had 2 years of freedom to grow make a profit. If greed wasn't involved you should have made a profit I know I did. Thanks I'll enjoy the abating process work as well. With my taxes paid. Without growing a seed. Can't what till they tear out corn fields put all little guys out. Money in my piggy bank as well when Feds laugh at this place. So hopefully you waste the cash you made fighting the county still helps out me.

Property values soared in Calaveras County, when the state of Brown decided to allow marijuana growing against Federal Law. Now with the ban, prices are receding? I don't think so, property is still selling, when you don't list your property with a real estate company that has the Sheriff's wife as a realtor associate.

    The MLS data says you're wrong. Property values did not rise significantly during the UO period in Calaveras County, but did go up substantially in neighboring Amador and Toulumne counties, both of which had ban ordinances. You made a statement with no facts to back it up. Check the MLS data for all three counties during the relevant period, unless you're afraid of being proven to be a liar.
