What will Oakland do with their plans for Pot Farms, now that Prop 19 barely/almost made it?

my heaven.

Even though just a little more than half of the California voters voted against Prop 19, Oakland will resume its plan of taking marijuana out of the ‘taboo’ market.

In it’s City Council meeting, Oakland officials have decided to ratify the application process of these soon to be government-sanctioned ‘amazing’ pot farms.  In the same measure, Oakland is also allowing for a doubling in medical marijuana despensaries.

Even though the sale of medical marijuana is authorized by state and local regulations, pot farming has largely operated in the shadows. Oakland wants to change that, and is planning to do so on a grand scale.”

Some of the changes that they are making to the application process is that it requires applicants to undergo farming licenses requirements, background checks, and that they have the money to do what they are doing (financially backed).

The city is hoping that these changes will help in the organization of dealing with a city where pot farms are allowed.  🙂
