August 4, 2016, Deb Murphy, Sierra Wave
Inyo’s Board of Supervisors took the safe and sane approach to what many assume will be legalized recreational use of marijuana: let the community weigh in on the November 8 ballot, but, just in case, also include a measure on a tax model for commercial operations.
Planning Department staff was directed to develop options for consideration and action at the Board’s August 9 meeting. This is one of those “time is of the essence” scenarios; the deadline for the County’s general election ballot is three days after the meeting: August 12.
