In November 2016, 55.12% of San Bernardino city registered voters approved Measure O, the citizen-initiated San Bernardino Regulate Marijuana Act of 2016. The initiative seeks to replace the previous ban on marijuana businesses in the City with a regulatory and permitting system.
To assist the pubic in understanding the process of implementation, this webpage will feature status updates and relevant documents.
At this time, City departments are in the process of integrating the provisions of Measure O into the City's existing Development Code, developing procedures for receiving applications, and identifying provisions that may require interpretation and clarification prior to implementation. The San Bernardino Development Code and Measure O are both complex legal regulatory frameworks and it will require time to properly implement this new law.
The City expects to have an update on its progress in March.
Interested parties may contact Stephanie Sanchez in the Community Development Department for more information or to signup to receive email updates regarding the implementation process.
