From the city’s announcement:

What are these meetings about?

On November 8, 2016, the voters of the State of California passed Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA) which established a comprehensive system to legalize nonmedicinal (recreational) marijuana products for use by adults 21 years and older, and to tax the growth and retail sale of marijuana for nonmedicinal use. The cultivation, processing, manufacturing, distribution and sale of both medicinal and nonmedicinal marijuana are currently prohibited citywide.

The purpose of the meetings is to obtain community input on whether any activities related to medicinal and nonmedicinal marijuana should be allowed within the City of Pasadena. Please attend one of the meetings to learn more and share your thoughts.

What is the format of the meeting?

All meetings will be an “open-house” style format where City staff will be available to answer questions and talk one-on-one and collect your input. The content of all meetings will be the same. Please attend the meeting most convenient for you.

What is the next step?

Staff will prepare draft regulations pertaining to the retail sales, manufacturing, processing, cultivation and distribution of marijuana, which will then be presented to the Planning Commission and the City Council at separately-noticed public hearings.
