Hayward and San Leandro voters will decide whether to tax marijuana sales in their cities if recreational use is legalized in California. Both councils agreed to put the proposed taxes on the November ballot to collect the potential revenue as soon as possible. Also on the ballot is Proposition 64, which would legalize the adult use of recreational marijuana. At its July 19 meeting, the Hayward City Council agreed unanimously to let voters decide whether

First came the legalization of medical marijuana dispensaries, cultivation, manufacturing and delivery services in Salinas. Now comes another thorny question: How much will these businesses be taxed? Salinas residents will have a chance to cast their vote on a marijuana business tax in the Nov. 8 general election. For cultivators, the city proposed a rate of $15 per square foot for plant canopy, or square footage, for the first three years, with a cap at

A split San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors directed staff Tuesday to develop an urgency ordinance regulating the cultivation of medical marijuana that, if adopted, could be on the books until the elected officials pass permanent rules. With a 3-2 vote — Supervisors Adam Hill and Bruce Gibson dissented — the board directed county staff to come back with rules next month banning any new plantings of medical marijuana countywide and, also, prohibiting grows of any

By Deb Murphy Bishop City Council just said no to most elements of the state’s recreational marijuana legislation at Monday’s meeting, but will be doing more research and constituent-talking on indoor cultivation and delivery within the city limits. Council wrapped itself around an axle on allowing cultivation for medicinal use late last year, in the end opting to take a wait-and-see approach. The waiting period has ended with predictions that Proposition 64, legalizing recreational pot,

Bakersfield’s Marijuana Initiative won’t be added to the already bulging November ballot despite 22,000 residents having signed petitions supporting the measure. The proposal to replace the City of Bakersfield’s marijuana dispensary ban with state regulations just hasn’t attracted enough qualified signatures yet. Kern Citizens for Patient Rights, which has spent nearly $60,000 on the effort, needs at least 15,438 verified signatures for its measure to qualify for a ballot. That’s at least 10 percent of the 154,375 people

SAN BERNARDINO >> A second citizen initiative to allow medical marijuana dispensaries in the city will be on the ballot in November, after supporters turned in more than 7,000 signatures Monday. The petitions will have to be checked to verify that they come from registered voters in the city, but proponents turned in nearly double the number required. They were turned in early enough that the measure — the San Bernardino Medical Cannabis Restrictions and

A parade of Fillmore residents told the City Council Monday night that easing a local medical marijuana ban would either help patients suffering from painful illnesses or would lead to more crime and promote addiction among children and teens. Council members listened to testimony from medical and recreational marijuana advocates, law enforcement representatives and regular citizens during a 3½-hour public hearing on whether they should allow cultivation, sale and delivery of medical marijuana. The council

In a Sierra Nevada foothills region long known for marijuana growing, Nevada County supervisors in January enacted a sweeping ban on outdoor and commercial medical marijuana cultivation. But that only triggered a voter revolt. Now, after residents voted by a 59 to 41 percent margin to reject Measure W, a June 8 initiative to reinforce the cultivation ban, the county’s pot politics are roiling anew. Pro-marijuana advocates are expected to pack Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors
