Pursuant to the County’s permanent and interim cannabis ordinances, all commercial cannabis activities are currently prohibited in the County of Tulare.  As such, Tulare County is not issuing business licenses for either medical or recreational commercial cannabis activities.

The Board of Supervisors has the authority to regulate certain medical and/or recreational cannabis activities. Members of the public may consider regularly checking the Board of Supervisor’s agenda to stay informed about any proposed actions relating to cannabis.
