WHEREAS, to regulate commercial use of cannabis, the MAUCRSA modifies Division 10 (Cannabis) of the Business & Professions Code, the purpose and intent of which is to “establish a comprehensive system to control and regulate the cultivation, distribution, transport, storage, manufacturing, processing, and sale of both of the following: 1) Medicinal Cannabis and medicinal cannabis products for patients with valid physician’s recommendations; 2) Adult-use cannabis and adult-use cannabis products for adults 21 years of age and over.”; and

WHEREAS, the MAUCRSA renames the Bureau of Medical Cannabis as the Bureau of Cannabis Control and empowers the Bureau of Cannabis Control to adopt regulations consistent with the changes in the law; and

WHEREAS, the MAUCRSA states that a local jurisdiction shall not prevent transportation of cannabis or cannabis products on public roads by a licensee transporting cannabis or cannabis products in compliance with Division 10; and

WHEREAS, the MAUCRSA authorizes cities to “reasonably regulate” without completely prohibiting personal cultivation of cannabis; and

WHEREAS, the MAUCRSA states it shall not be a violation of state and local law for persons 21 years of age or older to possess, process, transport, purchase, obtain, or give away to persons 21 years of age or older without any compensation whatsoever up to 28.5 grams of cannabis not in the form of concentrated cannabis or not more than eight grams of cannabis in the form of concentrated cannabis contained in cannabis products; and

WHEREAS, the MAUCRSA states it shall not be a violation of state and local law to possess, plant, cultivate, harvest, dry, or process not more than six living cannabis plants and possess the cannabis produced by the plants.

WHEREAS, the MAUCRSA states it shall not be a violation of state and local law for individuals to smoke or ingest cannabis or cannabis products.  Ingestion or smoking of Cannabis is prohibited in public within the City; and

WHEREAS, the MAUCRSA authorizes cities to completely prohibit the establishment or operation of any cannabis business licensed under Division 10 within its jurisdiction, including cannabis dispensaries, cannabis retailers, and cannabis delivery services; and

WHEREAS, the California Attorney General’s August 2008 Guidelines for the Security and Non-Diversion of Marijuana Grown for Medical Use recognizes that the cultivation or other concentration of marijuana in any location or premises without adequate security increases the risk that nearby homes or businesses may be negatively impacted by nuisance activity such as loitering or crime; and

WHEREAS, under the Federal Controlled Substance Act, the use, possession, and cultivation of any amount of marijuana (i.e., cannabis) are unlawful and subject to federal prosecution without regard to a claimed medical need; and

WHEREAS, the indoor and outdoor cultivation of cannabis has potential adverse effects to the health and safety of City residents, visitors, and employees and those in nearby residences or businesses including: structural damage to buildings from unpermitted renovations and alterations to buildings or structures; increased moisture and excessive mold, bacterial, and fungal growth among others; increased risk of fire and electrocution from improper or overburdened electrical circuits and wiring; noxious odors and fumes from plants or pesticides, fertilizers, and other chemicals associated with cannabis cultivation or cannabis activities such as oil extraction or concentration; increased trash and refuse; potential access to cannabis by minors; increased demand for fire and police services; increased sewage treatment expenses from drain disposal of irrigation water or surface stream water quality impacts from runoff and illegal dumping, among others.; and

WHEREAS, based on the experiences of other cities, these negative effects on the public health, safety, and welfare are likely to occur, and continue to occur, in the City due to the establishment and operation of cannabis activities in the period before a non-urgency ordinance would become effective; and

WHEREAS, based on the findings above the potential establishment of cannabis activities in the City without regulation poses a current and immediate threat to the public health, safety and welfare in the City due to the negative land use and other impacts of such uses as described above; and

WHEREAS, it is in the interest of the City, its residents, and its lawfully permitted businesses that City staff consider zoning, zoning ordinance amendments, and/or other measures to locally regulate cannabis activities in the City; and

SECTION 3. Prohibited Use.

Cannabis activities, as defined herein, shall be prohibited uses and unlawful in all zoning districts and other parts of the City, with the exception of those non-commercial cannabis activities expressly deemed to be lawful under state and local law such as those listed in Health and Safety Code section 11362.1. However, personal cultivation of up to six cannabis plants outside upon the grounds of a private residence shall also be prohibited as allowed under Health and Safety Code section 11362.2(b)(3). However, notwithstanding any other provision of this ordinance, the personal non-commercial cultivation for personal use of up to six cannabis plants within a private residence as described in Health and Safety Code section 11362.2(a) shall not be prohibited by this ordinance, but the City may develop and enact reasonable regulations to regulate such activity as provided in Health and Safety Code 11362.2(b)(1). No cannabis activities shall be established or continued if previously established, and no use permit, variance, building permit, or any other entitlement or permit, whether administrative, ministerial, or discretionary, shall be approved or issued for Cannabis activities herein in any zoning district or other area within the City, and no person shall otherwise establish such businesses or operations conducting cannabis activities in any zoning district or other area within the City.

SECTION 4. Penalty for Violation.

No person, whether as principal, agent, employee or otherwise, shall violate, cause the violation of, or otherwise fail to comply with any of the requirements of this ordinance. Every act prohibited or declared unlawful by this ordinance, and every failure to perform an act made mandatory by this ordinance, shall be a misdemeanor.  Violations of this ordinance may, but need not be, be prosecuted as a misdemeanor or an infraction, at the discretion of the City Attorney or the District Attorney. The City Attorney or District Attorney shall consider the following factors in exercising his or her discretion to prosecute the violation as an infraction: (a) the severity of the threat of the cannabis activity causing the violation to public safety; (b) whether the violation is a first offense; (c) whether the violation did or did not place minors under the age of 18 at significant risk; and (d) any other factor that the City or District Attorney finds merits a lesser punishment then a misdemeanor. Any violations of this ordinance may be prosecuted criminally and/or civilly. In addition to the penalties provided in this section, any activity, circumstance, or condition caused or permitted to exist in violation of any of the provisions of this ordinance is declared a public nuisance and may be abated as provided in this Municipal Code and/or under state law.

SECTION 5. CEQA.

The City Council hereby finds this ordinance is not a project within the meaning of Section 15378 of the State of California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”) Guidelines (Title 14 Cal Code Regs.), because it has no potential for resulting in physical change in the environment, directly or indirectly (See also CEQA Guidelines section 15060(c)(2). The City Council further finds, under CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3), that this ordinance is also exempt from the requirements of CEQA in that the activity is covered by the general rule that CEQA applies only to projects which have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. Where it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have significant effect on the environment, the activity is not subject to CEQA. The City Council, therefore, directs that a Notice of Exemption be filed with the County Clerk of the County of Lassen in accordance with CEQA Guidelines.

SECTION 6 Severability.

If any section, subsection, subdivision, sentence, clause, phrase, or portion of this ordinance for any reason is held to be invalid or unconstitutional by the decision of any court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this ordinance. The City Council herby declares that it would have adopted this ordinance, and each section, subsection, subdivision, sentence, clause, phrase, or portion thereof, irrespective of the fact that any one or more sections, subsections, subdivisions, sentences, clauses, phrases, or portions thereof be declared invalid or unconstitutional.

SECTION 7. Custodian of Records.

The documents and materials that constitute the record of proceedings on which this ordinance is based are located at the City Clerk’s office located at 66 North Lassen St., Susanville, CA 96130. The custodian of these records is the City Clerk.

SECTION 8. Restatement of Existing Law.

Neither the adoption of this ordinance nor the repeal of any other ordinance of this City shall in any manner affect the prosecution for violations of ordinances, which violations were committed prior to the effective date hereof, nor be construed as a waiver of any license or penalty or the penal provisions applicable to any violation thereof. The provisions of this ordinance, insofar as they are substantially the same as ordinance provisions previously adopted by the City relating to the same subject matter or relating to the enumeration of permitted uses under the City’s zoning code, shall be construed as restatements and continuations, and not as new enactments.

SECTION 13. The City Clerk shall certify as to the adoption of this ordinance and shall cause it to be published within fifteen (15) days of the adoption and shall post a certified copy of this ordinance, including the vote for and against the same, in the Office of the City Clerk, in accordance with California Government Code Section 36933.
