Cannabis / Marijuana Regulations

Cannabis Regulations

Cannabis Businesses and Cultivation


Cannabis uses are currently prohibited in San Anselmo commercial districts. California voters have legalized cannabis for both recreational use (for adults 21+) and medical use. The Town Council is seeking community input on this issue to determine if they should consider changing Town laws. The State begins issuing licenses to cannabis-related businesses in January 2018.
