Half Moon Bay Voters to Decide on Five Pot Measures This Fall

When Half Moon Bay voters go to the polls this November, they’ll be inundated with all things cannabis. The city has approved five marijuana-related measures for the ballot this November. 

One measure will ask voters whether they wish to allow and regulate commercial cannabis cultivation in the city’s Agricultural/Exclusive Floriculture Zoning District. Another will ask whether the city should allow and regulate up to two pot shops in Half Moon Bay. A separate measure will deal with cannabis manufacturing. Finally, voters will have the opportunity to tax commercial cannabis businesses in the city.

Commercial cannabis businesses are currently prohibited in Half Moon Bay. If voters choose to legalize and tax them, the city could bring in an estimated 1.5 million in annual revenue.
