Cities In California Are Suing The BCC Over Cannabis Delivery Regulations

One county and 24 cities are suing the BCC and its director, Lori Ajax

A Sacramento boutique law firm known for its local government, land use and water practices will lead the legal challenge to overturn California regulations that allow marijuana deliveries throughout the state, even in jurisdictions that don’t want them.

Churchwell White is representing one county and 24 cities suing the Bureau of Cannabis Control and its director, Lori Ajax, over the expansive delivery authority included in marijuana regulations approved in January. The suit, filed late Thursday in Fresno County Superior Court, asks a judge to invalidate the specific rule allowing statewide deliveries without local approval.

Churchwell White name partner Steven Churchwell is a former general counsel to the state fair political practices commission and a onetime lawyer at the Office of Administrative Law. Firm co-founder Douglas White is a land use attorney with an extensive history in state Capitol advocacy work.
