Beyond just offering a good meal, these events create community, says chef and co-owner Joseph Nelson. Diners share a family-style meal at one long table and inevitably find themselves making connections, he says. “It’s a bunch of people who have never met each other before, sitting down for a couple of hours,” Nelson says. “By the end of dinner, you’d think they’d known each other for years.”
The permitting process will depend on the type of entitlement required by the final ordinance that is ultimately adopted. Typically, it requires an application which is reviewed by the DARM Director but may also require the Planning Commission and Council to consider the permit. An application usually requires a Site Plan and other site specific and business information to be submitted.
“But Woodlake – a town of less than 8,000 people about 15 miles northeast of Visalia in Tulare County – has pushed forward at breakneck speed, going from idea to ordinance to the approval of two companies’ dispensary proposals in less than six months.

A hybrid is a mixture of two genetically different strains of marijuana. Hybrids are created when the pollen from one strain (male) is transported (by an insect, or hand) to a flower (female) of a different strain. The plant then produces seeds which possess the genetics from both parents. Hybrids sometimes exhibit enhanced potency and hardiness as compared to their parents. An example, the strain Chemdawg is a cross of OG Kush and Sour Diesel strains.
Businesses may begin their application process with the Bureau of Cannabis Control in Sacramento so long as they have received a permit from the city they plan to operate in. Each municipality can determine their own rules and regulations as to how commercial cannabis will coexist in their communities, if at all. Cities still hold the final ruling on whether or not marijuana businesses can operate within their jurisdiction.

It is compatible with vegan diets.
