On December 5th, 2017, the Santa Barbara City Council passed a land use measure that permitted zoning locations for retail and wholesale operators. The Council limited location of commercial cannabis businesses to within the Manufacturing Industrial (M-I) Zone in the City for storefront retail sales, retail delivery only, manufacture, distribution, testing, and indoor cultivation. The Council also allowed storefront retail sales of cannabis to occur within the Commercial General (C-G) Zone and Commercial Retail (C-R) Zone within the City.
