The Mendocino County Department of Agriculture recently announced that it will be hosting workshops in mid-April to help medical cannabis cultivators with their applications for cultivation permits.
The DOA’s workshops will take place on April 19 and 20 at multiple locations within the county, with representatives from the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board and California Department of Fish and Wildlife available to help cultivators with their agency-specific paperwork.
According to the Mendocino Voice, the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors isn’t scheduled to review the proposed Medical Cannabis Cultivation Ordinance until its meeting on March 21, 2017; however, the BOS is expected to have finalized the regulations by the beginning of April, adding a timeliness to the DOA’s workshops.
If the BOS approves the cultivation ordinance, the DOA will be responsible for issuing permits to cultivators, as well as monitoring their compliance with environmental and public health rules. The DOA’s workshops are intended to assist cultivators in submitting accurate and complete applications, which should help prevent delays in application processing.
The workshop schedule is as follows:
April 19 from 9 a.m.–12 p.m.
Garden Club, 375 Harwood Road, Laytonville CA
April 19 from 2:30–5 p.m.
