Coalition Building: Cannabis Partners Sign Letter Supporting a Limitation on Cultivation Acreage

November 18, 2017

Dear Friends, Neighbors and Community Members:

It is a well-known fact that California is an agricultural powerhouse. We

supply the nation and the world with hundreds of agricultural products. One

of them is cannabis. Unlike every other crop, cannabis can only be legally sold

in California. This is a significant challenge for everyone--from farmers to

policy makers.

The challenges of regulating cannabis will be much more severe if we open

the flood gates to large scale mega grows too quickly. That is why the state

legislature did not include licenses larger than 1 acre in the MMRSA in 2015

or the MCRSA in 2016. That is why Prop 64 delayed the issuance of large

scale license until 2023. And, that is why the CDFA’s Final Environmental

Impact Report for CalCannabis Cultivation Licensing Program issued on

11/13/17 did not consider grows larger than an acre.

For these reasons I support policies that would restrict each business to a

maximum of one acre of cultivation until 2023.
