The California Cannabis Countdown: San Bernardino County and the City of San Bernardino

The California Cannabis Countdown: San Bernardino County and the City of San Bernardino

 

 

California cannabis San BernardinoCalifornia has 58 counties and 482 incorporated cities across the state, each with the option to create its own rules or ban marijuana altogether. In this California Cannabis Countdown series, we plan to cover who is banning, who is waiting, and who is embracing California’s change to legalize marijuana — permits, regulations, taxes and all. For each city and county, we’ll discuss its location, history with cannabis, current law, and proposed law to give you a clearer picture of where to locate your cannabis business, how to keep it legal, and what you will and won’t be allowed to do.

 

Our last California Cannabis Countdown post was on Yuba County, and before that, Marin County, Nevada County, the City of Lynwood, the City of Coachella, Los Angeles County, the City of Los Angeles, the City of Desert Hot Springs, Sonoma County, the City of Sacramento, the City of Berkeley, Calaveras County, Monterey County and the City of Emeryville.

 

Welcome to the California Cannabis Countdown.

 

Location. Ah, San Bernardino County, part of the fearsomely named Inland Empire. The county is located in southern California and it is the fifth most populous county in the state and the twelfth most populous county in the United States. With a geographical area covering 20,105 square miles, San Bernardino County is the largest county by area in the United States. When you fly into San Bernardino County for the first time you’ll probably take a second look at your ticket when you see Ontario as your destination. You will also notice the majestic San Gabriel Mountains and you’ll also feel the winds whipping off of them and making you wish you had driven and not flown.

 

History with Cannabis and Current Cannabis Laws. In 2011, the San Bernardino Board of Supervisors adopted ordinance No. 4140 banning medical marijuana dispensaries and outdoor cultivation in the Count’s unincorporated areas, with a minor exemption for one or two people to cultivate their own cannabis indoors. It wasn’t then surprising that the Board of Supervisors moved in 2016 to ban all commercial cannabis activities within San Bernardino County with ordinance 4309 (now Chapter 84.34 of the County Code). Section 84.34.040 of this new ordinance provides for the following exemptions:

 

The prohibition concerning commercial cannabis activity does not apply to a person with an identification card cultivating cannabis for his or her personal medical use or to a primary caregiver cultivating cannabis for the personal medical use of no more than five specified persons with identification cards, subject to the following requirements:

 

(a)     The cannabis is not sold, distributed, donated, or provided to any other person or entity.

 

(b)     A primary caregiver may only receive compensation in full compliance with Health and Safety Code § 11362.765, subdivision

 

(c)       Cultivation may only be conducted indoors at the private residence of the person with an identification card or the primary caregiver of the person with an identification card.

 

(d)       Cultivation shall be limited to no more than:

 

(1)         Twelve cannabis plants per person with an identification card or primary caregiver per private residence; and,

 

(2)       An aggregate total of 24 cannabis plants per private residence when more than one person with an identification card or primary caregiver lives at the private residence.

 

Proposed Cannabis Laws. Though San Bernardino County still stubbornly maintains a restrictive stance towards marijuana, the residents of the City of San Bernardino voted for Measure O on November 8, 2016. Measure O, known as the San Bernardino Regulate Marijuana Act of 2016, authorizes the City of San Bernardino to regulate both medical and recreational cannabis businesses consistent with California State law. Measure O’s implementation has however been delayed by two lawsuits asserting that its zoning restrictions too narrowly constrict the areas within the city in which a cannabis business can operate. Though it is unfortunate these lawsuits are delaying the issuance of City of San Bernardino cannabis licenses, it is at least good to see progress being made on cannabis in the Inland Empire. San Bernardino County and many of its cities still prohibit marijuana businesses but we see many other cities within the county and the rest of Inland Empire following the City of San Bernardino’s lead within the next year.

History: The man known as Captain Chronic was born the son of Nobel Prize winning Botanist, Dr. Fenius Blunt and Nigerian Student Monisola Abaeza. Hearing stories of the unusually long life spans and vitality of the members of the regions Abaeza Clan, young Fenius traveled there in search for a cure for his alzheimer’s stricken grandmother mother Civil rights advocate Nona Blunt.

Monisola Abaeza was the granddaughter of a Shaman of great power and knowledge much of which he passed on to her, his only grandchild. The young botanist and student met and quickly fell in love. It was on their wedding night that Monisola revealed the secret of her clan’s youth, Sativa Abaeza. The herb which had been breed and cross-breed for its curative properties. The Abaeza Clan used the herb in food, medicine and of course in recreational practices.

Blunt returned to the States a rejuvenated man and with his new bride immersed himself into developing the plant into an effective cure for Alzheimer’s and dementia. It was at this time that they were blessed with their only child whom they named Fenius Jr. At the height of their happiness tragedy struck. A large pharmaceutical company in early development of a synthetic drug called Marinol was threatened by Blunts more potent and effective Abaeza Weed and they offered to buy his operation for a large some of money.

Fenius senior knew the corporation would never let his discovery reach the common man and flatly refused their offer. Angered, the company had his lab and home burned to the ground killing the doctor and his beloved wife. Only young Fenius and the Doctor’s long time assistant Pegotta survived. Pegotta returned to Nigeria with Fenius Jr and trained him as a Nigerian warrior. More importantly Pegotta taught the young Blunt the breeding techniques his father had perfected.

At the age of 21 Fenius returned to the U.S. to enroll in Humboldt University. There he breeds his Nigerian strain with native California Chronic. The resulting plant was both extremely potent and possessed strength and mind augmenting abilities inherent in the Abaeza. Before he could publish his discovery, his lab was raided by federal agents at the urging of Amrich pharmaceutics.

In the ensuing battle, the feds attempting to destroy the experimental plants and turned their flame throwers on crop. As the crop of over 100 flowering plants burned, the building structure collapsed trapping Blunt in the grow chamber. He was knocked out and trapped in the smoke filled room for more than 30 minutes. Left for dead, he miraculously emerged from the rubble and found that the extraordinary volume of high potency THC changed his body chemistry in a variety of ways, granting him several super human abilities

Fenius escaped his father’s fate and vowed to use his super weed granted powers to battle political corruption and ignorance backing marijuana prohibition. He has since adopted the moniker “Captain Chronic” and has been waging a personal war against Amrich and its CEO Toby Straight.

Known Power: Captain Chronic possesses several superhuman abilities derived from intense exposure to the Super Chronic. The active THC agents protect his body’s cells making him impervious to puncture wounds and small caliber fire arms. It has also augmented his body’s natural healing ability allowing him to rapidly heal from injury.
