Cannabis refers to all parts and varieties of the cannabis plant. Cannabis is also commonly referred to as marijuana, pot, or weed. Commercial cannabis includes medical or non-medical/adult-use cannabis and associated products.
Commercial cannabis activity is currently illegal in Mountain View. The City Council has directed staff to develop a permitting and regulatory scheme for commercial cannabis activity by the end of 2018. Commercial cannabis activity includes cultivation, possession, manufacture, distribution, processing, storing, laboratory testing, packaging, labeling, transportation, or sale of cannabis and cannabis products.
The City's current regulations on Cannabis can be found here.
California voters legalized adult-use cannabis by approving Proposition 64 in November 2016. While personal adult-use cannabis activity became immediately legal upon the passage of Proposition 64, commercial cannabis activity requires a State license. On January 1, 2018, the Bureau of Cannabis Control began issuing temporary commercial cannabis licenses; however, local jurisdictions retain the ability to prohibit and regulate all commercial cannabis activity.
