Twenty-four California cities and one county are suing the state to strike down a regulation that allows marijuana retailers to deliver products to residents in their communities without local permits. The lawsuit filed Friday in Fresno County Superior Court highlights a rift over a January 2019 rule from the Bureau of Cannabis Control that cleared the way for licensed cannabis companies to make home deliveries anywhere in the state, bypassing cities that wanted to regulate them. “Each community should be able to decide on their own how they chose to deal with the legalization of marijuana,” Clovis Police Chief Matt Basgall said in a news release announcing the lawsuit. The cities argue that rule conflicts with another provision in state law that gives them control over how marijuana companies operate within city boundaries. They want marijuana companies to obtain local permits before selling products. Get full access to The Sacramento Bee content across all your devices.
