City Council tepid about allowing legal operations

Encinitas voters appear to be going against a generally fidgety City Council when it comes to allowing cannabis businesses in the city, according to returns from the Nov. 3 election.

Measure H — which would allow commercial cannabis activities, with some restrictions, from retail and cultivation to manufacturing — was headed to a close victory with voters’ approval 51.17% to 48.83%, just at the minimum required to pass, based on county Registrar of Voters preliminary results as of 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The City Council declined to take a position on the measure at its June 17 meeting.

City Council members have largely panned the idea of allowing legal cannabis operations in the city despite a statewide law allowing such activities — Proposition 64, which California voters approved in 2016.

If Measure H is officially approved, it would allow the following in city limits:

Cannabis retailers in specified commercial zones for retail sales and delivery, with location and operational restrictions.
