Cannabis Conversation
Published on: 3/22/2017 12:00 AM


Nevada County's history with medical cannabis starts in 1996 with the passage of the Compassionate Use Act for medical cannabis.  Most recently, in the 2016 November election, Proposition 64 was passed in California allowing indoor grow for non-medical cannabis.  Use our medical and non-medical cannabis timeline for a quick history of local cannabis regulations to date. Find current regulations described in Article 5: Marijuana Cultivation of the County code, or in PDF form.


Community Process

The Cannabis Regulation Community Advisory Group (CAG) was formed by the Board of Supervisors to advise the Board on the development of a permanent Cannabis Ordinance for Nevada County.  This inclusive process will take into account the input of all community stakeholders. Nevada County has contracted MIG as a consultant during this process. MIG will provide facilitation services for the Cannabis Regulation Community Advisory Group to ensure a fair and equitable process while advising and drafting a new Cannabis Ordinance.

MIG will:

  • Ensure that the Advisory Group is formed in an inclusive and participatory way
  • Facilitate the formation of the group
  • Facilitate and document the groups work
  • Serve as a liasion between the:
    • Advisory Group
    • Board Subcommittee
    • County departments
    • Public

Community Advisory Group (CAG)


Applications for the Community Advisory Group were received from April 18 - May 2. Applications closed at 5:00PM on May 2, 2017.  With a strong number of applications received, MIG reviewed applications extensively to provide a knowledgeable recommendation to the Board.  To find supporting documents related to upcoming and past events (applicant lists, press releases, PowerPoints, Board Agendas, etc.), please use our Calendar of Events page.
