Cannabis State Legalization Task Force

As early as November 2016, California voters may consider legalizing and regulating adult use and possession of cannabis. To prepare for this, the Cannabis State Legalization Task Force was created via Ordinance by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in July of 2015. According to the Ordinance, “The purpose of the Task Force shall be to advise the Board of Supervisors, the Mayor, and other City departments on matters relating to the potential legalization of cannabis so that the City's policymakers are fully prepared to address the policy questions, through legislation, administrative actions, and otherwise, following the adoption of a State law.”

The Cannabis State Legalization Task Force will bring together a diverse group of stakeholders to consider and evaluate all policy options. It will consist of twenty-two members and be active for a two-year period beginning in January, 2016.  All meetings will be open to the public and provide an opportunity for public comment. As the Task Force conducts its business, notice for all meetings, as well as written materials, can be found below:

For all inquiries about the Task Force, please email the Task Force coordinators at Cannabis.Taskforce@sfdph.org. Thank you.
