This New Database Tracks Marijuana Laws in Every City and County

Having a difficult time keeping track of California’s patchwork of marijuana laws? Fret no more. Southern California News Group has compiled a database of cannabis policies in all 540 city and county jurisdictions in California.

The information is available here.

The database also includes local rankings for ‘marijuana friendliness’ based on a 100-point scale.

By crunching the numbers, the researchers stumbled on some interesting findings:

  • 61 cities and 9 counties had ordinances permitting recreational marijuana dispensaries as of April 6, 2018, but the state had only licensed recreational shops in 39 jurisdictions.
  • Riverside County has the highest number of pot-permissive cities, with six allowing every type of marijuana business licensed by the state.
  • Humboldt, Inyo, Del Norte, and Monterey are among the most permissive unincorporated areas for pot.
  • Surprisingly, however, Humboldt is home to some of the least friendly cities for marijuana.
