On Aug. 20 the Napa County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to adopt a resolution that will allow voters to choose where cannabis cultivation operations will be allowed in county areas.
Measure J will be put before the vote instead of being immediately adopted by the board.
The locations of cannabis grow operations in the area are a constant, ongoing contested issue. “You can have a cannabis grow an hour and a half away from a tasting room and have clients at the tasting room smell the marijuana as if it’s growing right next to them,” said Napa County Fram Bureau CEO Ryan Klobas.
For people like Klobas, the cannabis industry is often viewed as a threat to Napa County’s staple win industry. The bill would impose limits on the size of grow operations, which may benefit smaller growers, but would place restrictions on where they can be located to proximity to vineyards and other business.
