Sonoma County Issues First Permit to Cultivate Marijuana

Sonoma County is officially welcoming the newly regulated cannabis industry after issuing its first permit to cultivate marijuana.  County agriculture officials yesterday gave the owners of the cannabis cultivation operation Fiddler’s Greens south of Sebastopol the first official cultivation permit letter.  It’s the first granted for a cannabis business other than a medical marijuana dispensary in Sonoma County.  The process took more than five months and cost Fiddler’s Greens around 30-thousand-dollars.
