Cannabis Businesses

Printer-friendly version

In September 2017, the Brisbane City Council adopted Ordinance 617 to regulate certain types of medicinal and non-medicinal cannabis businesses in the City’s commercial zoning districts.

 
The Ordinance will allow cannabis businesses (including warehousing, distribution, manufacturing, and delivery-only retail) as conditionally permitted uses in the Crocker Industrial Park (TC-1 District). Research and development involving cannabis will also be allowed in Crocker Industrial Park, Southwest Bayshore (SCRO-1 District), and Sierra Point (SP-CRO District). The Ordinance will become effective on October 7, 2017. 
 
To apply for a Use Permit for a conditionally permitted cannabis business or testing laboratory, a Use Permit application and supplemental Cannabis Business Compliance Checklist is required. The Use Permit application checklist and supplemental Cannabis Business Compliance Checklist are available on the Planning Permit Applications page. Please note that in order to apply for a Use Permit or business license for a cannabis business or testing laboratory, a physical business premise is required. 
 
Questions about the Ordinance and permitting process for cannabis businesses may be directed to the Community Development Department at (415) 508-2120 or planning@brisbaneca.org.
