Fairfax Supports Medical Marijuana Program

The Fairfax Planning Commission last month decided to continue the permit review process in cooperation with the Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana, in an amiable show of support for all the work and effort the Club, the Town, and the County has undertaken to protect cannabis patients' rights in Marin County.

"I am very pleased to see the Town stand behind us in a show of solidarity for our program. We are happy to keep working on perfecting what is a model for local control and implementation of our state medical cannabis law. One of the Commissioners even suggested an amicus brief from the Town be developed in support of our Ninth Circuit appeal arguments," stated Rev. Lynnette Shaw, founder of the Marin Alliance and owner of the dispensary business license.

The Cannabis Buyers' Club Marin has been licensed by the Town of Fairfax since 1997.
