A Brave New World As Of January 1, 2018: Current State of Cannabis Rules for New Retail Stores in San Francisco:
Differences Between Medical Cannabis Rules and Recreational Cannabis Rules

M. Brett Gladstone
Hanson Bridgett LLP

During the last eight years, Mr. Gladstone has appeared at over half a dozen City Boards and Commission hearings in successfully representing cannabis retail stores seeking approvals for opening. He focuses his practice on seeking land use entitlements for his real estate clients, and on real estate transactions generally. Mr. Gladstone represents investors, developers, nonprofits and other property owners in land-use proceedings and CEQA compliance with regard to residential and mixed use development throughout the Bay Area.

The State of California is significantly regulating the industry for the first time after voters approved a loosely regulated system twenty years ago, where users of the products had to be part of a collective that included growers and distributors. San Francisco has created an equally complex series of regulations on where the cannabis can be sold, and under what circumstances.

Come to learn the various protections created by these regulations, and how City politics has created them.
