The Oakland, Calif. city council voted Tuesday to approve four large, city-licensed medical cannabis production plants. The operations would require a business owner to obtain insurance, operate in an industrial-zoned area of the city and also pay a more than $200,000 tax to the city each year. Small growers complain it could put them out of business in favor of government-sponsored "big box" style pot production that doesn't cater to the various strains needed by patients.
The city could also see big dividends if California voters approve a resolution allowing the recreational use of cannabis in the state.
