Our local firefighters were there on the spot, and prevented any damage to the homes nearby. Thank you all for your quick work and professionalism—we’re lucky to have you! ~Bob

U.O.P. Publishes Study of the Fiscal Impact of Cannabis Regulation on the Calaveras County Budget

Posted by: News_Desk on 08/16/2017 03:01 PM
Stockton, CA...The University of the Pacific Center for Business and Policy Research published a comprehensive study of the fiscal impact of regulated cannabis on the Calaveras County budget. The study demonstrates that regulating commercial cannabis is estimated to generate between $7.2 million and $15.9 million in net revenue for the County after accounting for additional County costs that would result from the cannabis regulation program. This net revenue represents between 12% and 25% of the County general fund and thus would make a substantial difference to the County’s efforts to resolve its structural deficit and improve a range of public services.
