Whether you love or hate how Sonoma County governmental agencies are dealing with the issue of marijuana, here’s your opportunity to have a serious say in the matter.

Applications are being accepted through Friday, May 12 for the county’s Cannabis Advisory Group. It’s no small commitment — you’re basically signing on for two years of meetings to help guide the final outcomes — but for folks with a serious interest in how this plays out, it’s a front-row seat to the inner mechanics of lawmaking.

The idea is to get 12-20 folks of diverse backgrounds from different areas of the county to provide input and feedback on developing, amending and funding local cannabis programs and policies.

According to the website: The areas of focus for the Advisory Group would be informed by the group itself. The County anticipates that issues would include, but not be limited to, the following:

• Permitting

• Enforcement

• Impacts and Mitigation Programs

• Tax Policy

• Revenue Expenditure

Any resident of the county may apply. “Applications will be evaluated based on experience with the cannabis industry or expertise in an area that is or may be heavily impacted by the cannabis industry.”

Sound like you? Get moving and complete the application by 5p.m. on Friday.
