The City of Stockton Community Development Department has initiated a project that will result in updates and revisions to the City’s current cannabis ordinance and policy. A virtual community meeting will be held on Monday, May 3, from  5:30 to 7:30 p.m. To access the link and instructions for participating in the meeting, please visit

The Cannabis Policy Amendment Project will review the City’s current cannabis regulatory program, including current market demands, existing business locations,  allowable land uses, and equity and barriers to entering the market. In addition to review of existing conditions, the project will analyze best practices within other communities, crime statistics, and market research through community-based meetings and interviews. 

The majority of funding for this project was made possible by a $60,000 grant provided through the California Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development. For questions or additional information, please contact the Community Development Department at (209) 937-8270 or visit
