Marin County Administrator Matthew Hymel on Monday advised the Board of Supervisors not to license medical marijuana dispensaries in unincorporated areas of the county. Hymel is recommending that the board consider a delivery-only dispensary model in lieu of concerns expressed by residents during public hearings about locating dispensaries near their homes.
“This decision illustrates the challenges in finding the right combination of operator and location to provide patients with safe access to medical cannabis locally,” Hymel said in a statement.
The Board of Supervisors has approved allowing four dispensaries in the unincorporated area of the county — two along the U.S. Highway 101 corridor and two in the central/west Marin area. The county subsequently
received 10 applications for dispensaries and held public hearings on their proposed locations.
