The Cannabis Regulatory Commission held its second public meeting on Thursday. The Commission took action on a number of procedural issues, including adopting a meeting schedule for the year. Although not mentioned during the meeting, the Commission is tasked with enacting regulations within 180 days of February 22, 2021.
Municipalities should also be reminded of their own deadline for action, which is rapidly approaching. As you should be aware, municipalities that fail to take action to prohibit cannabis operations within 180 days of February 22, 2021, will, by default, be locked into certain zoning rules allowing for cannabis operations for a period of five years. Please see the League’s cannabis information page for additional information.
