Bakersfield, Calif (KBAK/KBFX) — Kern County marijuana dispensaries have a closing deadline in May that is quickly approaching.
Representatives from five of those businesses continued their appeal during The Kern County Board of Supervisors’ Tuesday meeting at the Kern County Administrative Center.
The supervisors gave four of the five businesses a continuance, saying they will revisit the issue at the next supervisors meeting in March.
Supervisors denied the fifth business. That business requested an extension until Nov. 2020.
Earlier this month, The Kern County Board of Supervisors granted several dispensaries a six-month extension to continue operations after the ban on selling marijuana in Kern County went into effect in Nov. 2018.
The extension was meant to enable the dispensaries to recoup some of the capital investments made in their business before closing for good in accordance with the ban.
The next scheduled meeting is on March 18.
