The History of Marijuana in Benicia, California
The State of California has enacted several laws and ordinances that affected the use of marijuana in various cities including Benicia. Voters in California approved Proposition 215 in 1996, which allowed residents in all parts of the State to use marijuana for medical purposes. The propositions enabled licensed patients to use marijuana without fear of prosecution but specified the circumstances under which they are allowed to use marijuana. The city of Benicia was among the cities in the State that adopted the provisions of Proposition 215. In 2004, Senate Bill 420 was enacted, which clarified the provisions in Proposition 215. The Bill was also referred to as the Marijuana Program (MMP).
The Marijuana Program gave caregivers and qualified patients a limited defense to some criminal statutes in California. Other laws that affected the medical use of marijuana in Benicia include Assembly Bill 2650, which was enacted in 2010 and the Assembly Bill 1300 that was enacted in 2011. The intent of the two bills was to amend the Marijuana Program to enable cities and counties make other own marijuana laws. The two bills gave cities and counties authority to adopt and enforce local ordinances that allow or disallow the establishment of marijuana dispensaries.
After the Marijuana Program was amended, the City Council of Benicia proposed to ban marijuana facilities in the city. The Council conducted a public hearing before unanimously voting against marijuana dispensaries in 2011. However, the council placed the issues in its policy calendar after many experts in the medical field and other fields requested the City Council to reconsider its decision. The City Council of Benicia does not permit businesses that are not clearly permitted under the state laws. Many cities in Solano County did not have any laws regulating the establishment and licensing of marijuana dispensaries, which gave the Benicia City Council more reasons to ban the dispensaries.
The City Council issued a temporary ban in 2009 that disallowed marijuana dispensaries. The Council had to enact a new ordinance before the temporary ban expired. Otherwise, businesses in the City would have started marijuana dispensaries immediately after the ban expired if no ordinance was enacted. The planners would have experienced challenges when reviewing applications for dispensaries without an ordinance to follow. The Planning Commission opposed the idea of a permanent ban on the dispensaries. Some of the commissioners supported the establishment of the dispensaries arguing that the move was beneficial to qualifying patients. However, the City Council argued that the marijuana clubs and dispensaries were not permitted land use under the City Zoning regulations. The City Council of Benicia used the authority granted under the Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act of 2015 to ban marijuana commercial activities in all parts of the city. The Act required businesses that sell marijuana to have a local license and a State license before conducting any commercial activities. With counties and cities able to choose to grant licenses or ban commercial activities, Benicia City Council cited the dangers of cultivating marijuana for personal medical use when banning marijuana dispensaries. The dangers include increased criminal activities, environmental degradation, and fire hazards.
The Benicia City Council has held its position for years that cultivation of marijuana has a negative effect on the safety and health of residents. However, the benefits of allowing qualified patients to access marijuana and the State laws that support the use of marijuana for medical purposes have caused the Council to reconsider its position on several occasions. In December 2015, the Planning Commission petitioned the City Council to allow home deliveries to licensed patients. The City Council responded to the recommendation by asking its staff to gather enough information on the consequences of allowing home deliveries in the city.
In January 2016, the Benicia City Council approved changes to its ordinances that banned consumption, delivery, and distribution of marijuana within the city. The Council allowed indoor cultivation of cannabis as long as the residents in the neighborhood did not detect any olfactory or visual evidence of cannabis cultivation. Each qualifying patient or primary caregiver living on a property was allowed to cultivate up to 12 immature plants and 6 mature plants. Since voters in California approved recreational marijuana in the November 2016 elections, residents in Benicia will access medical and recreational easily if the City Council amends its ordinance to include the provisions of Proposition 64.
