Placer County staff will host three drop-in meetings in May to answer questions about rules for cannabis cultivation, and the county’s compliance and enforcement process.
Placer’s cannabis ordinance, allowing limited cultivation for personal use only, became effective in January 2017. It allows cultivation of up to six non-medical plants on 50 square feet or cultivation of 50 square feet of medical cannabis for personal use, but bans all commercial activity related to cannabis including cultivation, processing, manufacturing, delivery and distribution.
Fines for non-compliance range from $500 per plant over the six plant limit up to $5,000 a day for commercial activities including cultivation, manufacture or distribution.
