On December 12, 2017, the Modesto City Council had a first reading of amendments to the Municipal Code to regulate commercial cannabis activity and personal cannabis cultivation. The amended Municipal Code will become effective after a second reading followed by a statutory 30-day waiting period. The anticipated effective date is February 16. Until the effective date it is illegal to operate a commercial cannabis business in the City; and after the effective date it will be necessary to have a permit to operate a commercial cannabis business within the city limits.
Ordinance documents and City Council resolutions will be posted soon, along with the Cannabis Land Use Matrix. Links will be available on this page.
