Ojai releases new medical marijuana dispensary guidelines

Andra Belknap, Ojai Valley News reporter
Ojai issued licensing guidelines and applications Jan. 13 for medical marijuana dispensary operators wishing to locate within the city limits.
The guidelines allow a person to deliver cannabis within the city for medical use, provided they obtain a license from the city to do so. The guidelines also allow for the licensed operation of medical cannabis dispensaries in areas of the city zoned for manufacturing, including South Fulton Street, Bryant Street and Bryant Circle.
Any dispensary in the city of Ojai would be fairly nondescript, according to the guidelines. Signage that would include the words “cannabis” or “marijuana” will be prohibited and dispensaries will operate by appointment only.
The city will issue only three licenses for medical marijuana dispensaries. If the city receives more than three licensing applications, the licenses will be issued by “public, random lottery drawing.”
