The History of Marijuana Laws in Goleta
The State of California enacted the Senate Bill 420 in 2003, which allowed local governments to regulate marijuana use, cultivation, and delivery in their jurisdiction. Goleta has adopted several ordinances since Senate Bill 420 was passed that differ with the provisions of the State law. In August 2007, the City Council of Goleta adopted an urgency ordinance that banned marijuana dispensaries for 45 days. The Ordinance Committee had 45 days to conduct further research and draft a permanent ordinance to regulate the dispensaries. Four marijuana dispensaries had been established by the time the urgency ordinance was enacted.
In November 2007, Goleta’s City Council adopted another interim ordinance (No. 07-17) to extend the effectiveness of the ordinance adopted in August. The term was extended from 45 days to 22 months and 15 days. The ordinance would expire on August 30, 2009. The City Council argued that allowing the establishment of marijuana dispensaries before resolving some pending issues would have a negative impact on public health, welfare, and safety. One of the pending issues that the City Council was supposed to resolve was determining if the federal law governing the establishments of marijuana dispensaries would be enforced in the City. The Ordinance Committee would also establish the rulings of pending lawsuits that would give insight on the authority of the State and Federal governments.
Another pending issue was resolving zoning conflicts. The City of Goleta did not have any zoning for marijuana dispensaries. In addition, the Ordinance Committee would monitor the existing dispensaries to determine their impacts on the community. The committee was expected to table a report of their investigations at least 10 days before the ordinance expired in August 2009. In June 2009, the City Staff presented a report after investing the legality of marijuana dispensaries and their potential impacts. At the time of preparing the report, the conflicts between federal and state law on the establishment of the facilities had not been resolved. The California law had pending internal conflicts as well.
The City Staff recommended that the Council continue prohibiting marijuana dispensaries within the City. The staff cited that at the time of presenting their report, 112 cities and 9 counties in California had banned marijuana dispensaries. The cities that allowed the dispensaries had strict regulations but experienced an increase in crime rates. The large quantities of marijuana and cash in the dispensaries make them a major target for armed robberies. The staff argued further that the City could achieve the purposes of Proposition 215 without allowing the establishment of the facilities. Proposition 215 was enacted in 1996 to exempt primary caregivers and qualified patients from the criminal liability imposed by the federal law for using and delivering marijuana.
After the Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act was adopted in 2015, the City Council of Goleta introduced two ordinances to ban marijuana cultivation for commercial purposes. The ordinances also prohibited growing marijuana for personal use beyond the provisions of the State law. The requirements to pay license fees to deliver marijuana would not apply to individuals delivering the drug for medical use, that is, caregivers and certified patients. Individuals delivering marijuana had to apply for a license at a fee and register their vehicles with the City Council. The applicants have to pass a police background check to qualify for a delivery license. Goleta has two dispensaries that are allowed to sell and deliver marijuana in the City. The ordinances adopted in 2009 prohibit the establishment of new dispensaries. The ordinances introduced in 2015 clarify the City Council’s position on dispensaries and marijuana commercial activities as required by the Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act.
The decision to impose a license fee on marijuana delivery may be a response to the County’s decision to impose a 20% tax on medical and recreational marijuana. Voters in Santa Barbara approved the tax in the November 2016 general election. Goleta’s City Council is unlikely to allow recreational marijuana given its strict regulations on marijuana. Qualified patients have petitioned the City Council before to allow new marijuana dispensaries but the Council has maintained its stand against their establishment for years. Recreational marijuana is now legal in California but Goleta residents have to wait for the Council’s decision on the new State law.
