Regulating Local Cannabis Retail Sales and Marketing
Public Health recommends local jurisdictions consider an ordinance allowing for the sale and marketing of cannabis to review the Butte County Model Ordinance (PDF). This model ordinance was developed by the Public Health Institute's Getting it Right from the Start: Local Regulation of Recreational Cannabis project, to help cities and counties reduce the negative health impacts of legalization. An editable version of the ordinance may be provided upon request.
