The measure creates new priorities for how applicants are processed
The Board of Supervisors this week unanimously approved a measure from Mayor London Breed to make changes to the city’s three-year-old cannabis equity program.
The measure creates new priorities for how the city’s Office of Cannabis processes applicants for permits, according to a news release issued Wednesday from the mayor’s office.
“As San Francisco works to recover from COVID-19, it’s important that we support small businesses, including our cannabis industry,” said Breed. “This legislation helps us make sure the program continues to achieve its goals and ensure that cannabis business owners are supported and have the resources they need to be successful in San Francisco.”
In the three years since the city’s cannabis equity program was established to lower the barriers for entry to the industry for disadvantaged people, there have been 94 applicants and 36 permits issued.
