And new changes in redding's cannabis ordinance could make it easier for manufacturers to get up and running

The redding city council approved a new, revised cannabis ordinance at its meeting last night.

Under the new rules, manufacturers will be able to open up in areas zoned for heavy commercial as long as they have a 'site development' permit.

{BARRY TIPPIN: Really what it means is it opens up the territory under which a manufacturer can actually function and operate within the city limits. Another thing that they changed was the allowance for the use of butane as a solvent. 14 secs}

Tippin says butane, used in licensed, state-regulated facilities has been proven to be safe.

Previously, manufacturers could only operate in areas zoned for industrial use.
