The Redding city planning commission has recommended the city council adopt an ordinance making recreational marijuana sales legal within the city. This process started back with the passage of Proposition 64, making marijuana legal in the state of California. Like a lot of cities around the state, Redding had no law concerning the distribution, growth or use of marijuana. Since then the city council ordered that an ordinance is drafted allowing for the indoor growth, sale, and distribution of recreational marijuana within the city.


Tuesday night that ordinance cleared one of the final hurdles with the city planning commission recommending the city council adopt the ordinance. The city planning commission's role was to check the zoning rights for marijuana businesses. Some of the reasons stated for the city to have an interest in this issue is the elimination of the illegal sale of marijuana in the city and keep these drugs out of the hands of people under the age of 21. As the ordinance language says... "The city of Redding has a substantial interest in regulating cannabis." the city council is now expected to hear this item at its March 6th meeting where the council will either adopt or deny the ordinance.
