A coalition of 25 local governments has filed a lawsuit against the California Bureau of Cannabis Control in an effort to invalidate regulations allowing delivery of commercial cannabis statewide.
Covina council member Walter Allen III said in a statement April 5, 2019, that the bureau's actions burden local governments in jurisdictions that have regulated or banned commercial cannabis deliveries.
Attorneys for the coalition said the lawsuit was filed late April 4, 2019, in Fresno County Superior Court.
In addition to Covina, plaintiffs include Santa Cruz County, Agoura Hills, Angels Camp, Arcadia, Atwater, Beverly Hills, Ceres, Clovis, Dixon, and Downey.
Also participating are McFarland, Newman, Oakdale, Palmdale, Patterson, Riverbank, Riverside, San Pablo, Sonora, Tehachapi, Temecula, Tracy, Turlock, and Vacaville.
The bureau said it has no immediate comment on the lawsuit's claims.
