Cali Cannabis Cultivators May Lose Acreage Under Rule Changes

Cannabis cultivators in Santa Barbara County, CA may lose acreage allotments as the county’s Board of supervisors have voted for an ordinance change that could remove the acreage they hold under the cap by licensed cannabis farmers if the land isn’t being farmed by their third license renewal.

According to MJ Biz Daily, the revised amendment is opposed by local cultivators. It’s scheduled for its final approval at the November 29 board meeting and will be in effect 30 days after if it’s passed.

This revised amendment will also permit growers to fallow for as long as eight months every three-year period. But these farmers will need to cultivate all of their acreage allotment prior to the exemptions.
