The OB Planning Board on May 4, 2016.

Today, January 31st, the San Diego City Council will vote on a proposal involving recreational marijuana, that allows recreational marijuana sales, but would ban commercial and restrict personal cultivation and testing for safety and potency.

City staff is recommending that the Council vote to basically utilize the same type of regulations involving medical marijuana for recreational marijuana shops, and keep the prohibitions of cultivation and testing.

According to KPBS:

The policies council members will consider on Tuesday also include banning any marijuana delivery service that is not connected to a brick-and-mortar licensed dispensary, and banning personal cultivation unless the plants are in “closed and secured structures.”

Two council members proposed a similar moratorium on personal outdoor cultivation last month, but it was taken out at the request of Councilman Chris Ward. Proposition 64 allows personal outdoor cultivation of up to six plants as long as they are not visible from public property.

Voters in the City of San Diego approved Prop 64 by nearly 62 percent.

In response to the proposed ban, the Ocean Beach Planning Board wrote the City Council members to express their positions and concerns.
