The Mendocino Heritage Initiative offers the most efficient and responsive path toward a safer, regulated cannabis industry.
Endorsed by California Growers Association, Small Farmers Association, Mendocino Cannabis Policy Council, and Mendocino Cannabis Industry Association, the Initiative represents thousands of Mendocino County’s smallholder cultivators who are committed to participating in the next era of a regulated cannabis industry, for the greater good of our entire community.
What the Mendocino Heritage Act means for the people of Mendocino:
- Bridge Policy: The Mendocino Heritage Act will serve as a crucial bridge policy to bring Mendocino County into alignment with the provisions of the state’s MMRSA policy.
- Inclusive for the entire industry: It immediately introduces comprehensive oversight for all aspects of the cannabis industry including cultivation, nurseries, manufacturing, testing, processing, distribution, transportation and dispensary operations.
- No Farmer Left Behind: The Heritage Act protects small farmers and guarantees that permits will be available for cultivation for the 2017 season, ensuring environmental oversight and helping to curb unregulated activity.
- Cannabis as agriculture: Supports the State of California’s designation of cannabis as agriculture by moving regulation of industry under Department of Agriculture for permitting and enforcement of cultivation.
It’s not too late to sign CGA’s petition asking the Mendocino Board of Supervisors to adopt the Heritage Initiative now!
