#californiacannabis – “Sacramento County officials on Tuesday declined to take a step toward allowing cannabis dispensaries in unincorporated areas.
The Board of Supervisors failed to pass a proposal to put a cannabis and hemp business tax measure on the November ballot….
Frost expressed concerns over how all county residents would vote on the measure, despite how the tax would have only applied to cannabis businesses in unincorporated areas. Unincorporated areas make up about a third of the county’s 1.5 million residents.
“It’s not that I’m opposed to a vote,” Frost said. “It’s that I’m opposed to a vote where two-thirds of the constituents are making a decision for those that are singled out as impacted by that vote.””
