PASO ROBLES — The cannabis industry was delivered a series of major victories this past year, both state and nationwide, and has since evolved into some rather positive as well as negative consequences. The Paso Robles Task Force is inviting community members to join in on a meeting today, Feb. 10, at 10:30 a.m., in the City Council Chambers at City Hall, 1000 Spring St., to discuss potential trends of recreational and medical marijuana use in Paso Robles.
Under the Trump administration thus far, the marijuana industry has already quickly transformed into a rather bipartisan issue. In fact, the next 12 months are expected to be historic ones for the cannabis industry. It has been predicted that soon new markets will come online, an unprecedented number of states and countries will continue to legalize either medical or recreational marijuana, and the overall number of business opportunities will be bigger and better than ever.
The landscape for marijuana cultivates, retailers and other businesses in the industry will also simultaneously continue to evolve.
“The Paso Robles Task Force hopes to examine the marijuana industry trends on a (macro scale) and plans to eventually address those same trends here locally in Paso Robles on a more (micro scale),” said Lt. Ty Lewis of the Paso Robles Police Department.
While this will already be the Task Force’s sixth meeting, it is a multi-step process, Lewis said. Simply put, the goal of these meetings is to just help craft ideas. Ultimately, any actual rules and regulations, which are not expected to be discussed for at least another month, will be decided upon and implemented by the Paso Robles City Council.
“We would like to invite community members — young and old alike — the opportunity to personally speak with panel members themselves,” Lewis said. “It (will give) everyone a better idea of what exactly is going on and where things are headed for the time being.”
For any questions regarding the Task Force meeting, contact Lt. Lewis at 805-227-7438.
