Board of supervisors discuss medical marijuana delivery at Tuesday meeting

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Kern County supervisors did not make a decision on a proposal to allow mobile delivery of medicinal marijuana in Kern.

When supervisors banned all commercial marijuana businesses from Kern in October, several wanted to revisit the topic to address medical marijuana patients. They discussed a proposal to allow marijuana to be delivered to your doorstep. 

The possible regulation would allow for approximately six dispensaries, but all storefront sales would be prohibited.

On Tuesday, county counsel Mark Nations told supervisors that mobile delivery of marijuana is allowed by state law.

Supervisors voted to send the proposal to committee for further study, and bring the proposal back to the board next year when the state releases its new cannabis testing regulations.

The board determined the key piece still missing in California's cannabis plan is testing, which is required to ensure public safety. New state protocols for testing cannabis products aren't due out until next July.
