County warns cannabis growers of increased enforcement for out of compliance operators
By Spencer Cole
In a meeting designed to provide an update for cannabis operators, Santa Barbara County’s pot czar gave a stern warning: Get up to date with your documents or face the consequences.
“Our goal is keeping people in compliance until they don’t want to be in compliance anymore, and then we have enforcement,” Deputy CEO Dennis Bozanich said on Sept. 17 in Santa Barbara. Bozanich is the lead public official in Santa Barbara County when it comes to cannabis. It’s a job he’s held since 2016, when California voters approved Proposition 64 and legalized recreational marijuana.
