City of Madera

Cannabis Overview

On November 8, 2016, California voters passed Proposition 64, the Control, Regulate, and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana (“AUMA”) Act. This law legalizes nonmedical, recreational marijuana, subject to the regulation of local government jurisdictions in the State of California.

Following a thorough evaluation process, the Madera City Council has awarded all eligible Standard Retail or Microbusiness and Social Equity Commercial Cannabis Business (CCB) Permits within the City of Madera. No further applications for these specific CCB Permits will be accepted at this time. It is important to note that there is no limit on the number of vertically integrated, cultivation, distribution, manufacturing, or testing lab CCB Permits in the City of Madera.
