California will allow adults to legally buy recreational marijuana Jan. 1, 2017. But very few places in the Sacramento region are considering allowing retail sales or delivery of cannabis, and the ones that are don’t expect sales to begin by the start of the year.
When recreational marijuana sales became legal in Nevada on July 1, customers were lined up around the block of a dispensary near downtown Reno, eager to buy buds. In Las Vegas, cannabis enthusiasts showed up in limos and tour buses, ready to participate in the opening-day pot festivities.
Similar scenes are unlikely to occur across the state when California allows adults to legally buy marijuana Jan. 1. Very few places in the capital region, for example, are considering allowing retail sales or delivery of cannabis, and the ones that are don’t expect sales to begin by the start of the year.
Sacramento and Davis may allow dispensaries to sell pot to adults for recreational use, while other cities and counties already have voted against allowing retail sales.
