Until the final adoption of such regulations, the Board of Supervisors will not have a complete picture to facilitate a decision regarding zoning regulations for Marijuana Establishments beyond what is currently in place for Medical Marijuana Establishments. Applications pertinent to Marijuana Establishments would be prohibited during the moratorium, allowing City staff and the Board of Supervisors time to evaluate the implications of the Department’s regulations and consider other impacts related to the regulation or prohibition of Marijuana Establishments within the frame work of State Law.
