“Proposition 64 would allow the state to impose a 15% excise tax on the retail sale of marijuana. Also, the state would be able to levy a cultivation tax on growers of $9.25 per ounce for flowers and $2.75 per ounce for leaves. The ballot measure also would let cities and counties to impose their own taxes to cover costs of services, including enforcement.” (Patrick McGreevy, Los Angeles Times)
As of January 1st, medical and recreational (adult use) marijuana became legal in the state of California. Per the Prop 64 measure, adults over the age of 21 can now consume, purchase, possess, and grow cannabis without the fear of prosecution so long as they are within the regulation of the new law… and in accordance with any other policies put in place by the city in which they reside.
Closer to home, the Irving House and Harding House, in Cambridge, welcome guests to partake as long as they don’t smoke inside or create a ruckus, says owner and manager Rachael Solem. If you prefer homier accommodations, try searching budandbreakfast.com, an Airbnb-style online marketplace where people rent rooms, apartments, and even seaside cottages to those looking for a ganja-oriented getaway.

So much remains ambiguous about the regulated future of legalized pot in California, even more so in the Central Valley. As some cities are still waiting to make their final decision, others have banned it outright, and Fresno is soon to embark on the unique challenge of writing new policies for medical marijuana businesses, from growing all the way to sales – but one thing is clear, and that it is going to make for a busy yet very interesting 2018.

Connoisseurs of both cannabis and fine food can indulge both passions with a four-course supper-club experience from Mass Cannabis Chefs. Customers can peruse menus a few weeks ahead and buy tickets online — prices range from $100 to $150 per person — but they don’t learn the address of the event until the day before. The food is far from traditional stoner fare: Past menus have featured stuffed sea scallops, filet mignon, and cherry clafoutis with fresh whipped cream. And there are occasional vegetarian nights. The cannabis infusion in each course is customized to the individual’s preference.

Can't believe I haven't found out about this place as I've been living in the area for quite some time now. A friend told me... read more about this place so I HAD to check it out. All you need is an California ID and 21+. No medical card required! All the workers are super chill and very helpful. As a first timer like myself, they give you a free joint after you purchase one or more of their products. Prices aren't bad either. I am definitely going back here whenever I need more goodies!! THANK YOU TORREY HOLISTICS!!!! read less
Officials have begun targeting marijuana businesses that are operating without a state license. The Bureau of Cannabis Control has recently sent out cease-and-desist orders to approximately 500 cannabis businesses located in California that have not begun the process of obtaining a state license. The letter instructs all unlicensed businesses to stop all cannabis related activity until they receive proper licensing. Failure to follow state law will result in administrative and criminal penalties along with significant fines for each violation.
