Santa Ana to Debate Alternative Marijuana Initiative

The Santa Ana City Council Tuesday is set to consider a November ballot measure that would regulate and tax marijuana collectives.

The city measure is an alternative to another ballot initiative, sponsored by the collectives, which would allow marijuana collectives to operate, but virtually unregulated, according to a city staff report. The collective-backed initiative places no cap on the number of shops that can operate or restrict where they are located.

The city’s ballot measure would allow collectives only in industrial areas and with distance requirements from schools, parks and residential areas.

The Santa Ana City Council public meeting begins at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday. Click here to view the agenda.
