(PLACERVILLE, CA) – El Dorado County today announced the launch of a new website focused on the County’s cannabis issues. It includes information about personal and commercial guidelines, the County’s regulatory history of cannabis, State and County policies about cannabis, the code enforcement process, frequently asked questions and answers, and more.

“The combination of Prop 64 taking statewide effect January 1st, the nearly five-year County history of developing ordinances, creating ad hoc committees to address the issue of both medical and commercial cannabis, and the level of public interest in this issue makes today the right time to launch a site that addresses the myriad issues related to cannabis in El Dorado County,” said Board of Supervisor chair and member of the ad hoc Cannabis Committee, Michael Ranalli.

The new site is an addition to the County’s web page and contains seven robust pages of information for the public’s information and use.

“We included as much pertinent information as possible on this site,” said Supervisor Sue Novasel, who also serves on the ad hoc Cannabis Committee. “Recognizing that there may be some level of confusion around what people can and cannot do in El Dorado County and that there likely will be continual updates as the regulation and enforcement of commercial and personal cannabis evolve, we urge residents to check this site frequently so they can be maximally informed.”

In addition to the launch of the website, it was announced that the ad hoc Cannabis Committee is scheduled to meet Wednesday, January 31st from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the County Planning Commission conference room, located at 2850 Fairlane Ct. Building C, Placerville.

The website can be found on the County’s main website at https://www.edcgov.us and clicking the Cannabis icon on top right side of the page or at https://www.edcgov.us/Government/CAO/Cannabis/
