Safe Implementation of Marijuana Policy for Local Government


SIMPL stands for the Safe Implementation of Marijuana Policy for Local Government. SIMPL is a coalition of 25 California city and county jurisdictions (and counting) that have come together to ensure that Proposition 64, which legalized commercial cannabis activities in California, is implemented in a manner consistent with the way it was considered, voted on and passed by voters. In particular, SIMPL was formed to ensure that each city and county has the right to decide what types of commercial cannabis activities are appropriate for their community. SIMPL is not pro- or anti-cannabis. The SIMPL objective is to allow each community the ability to adopt rules that reflect their priorities and values consistent with the promise of local control contained in Proposition 64.

The following members are part of the SIMPL coalition: City of Agoura Hills, City of Angels Camp, City of Arcadia, City of Atwater, City of Beverly Hills, City of Ceres, City of Clovis, City of Covina, City of Dixon, City of Downey, City of McFarland, City of Newman, City of Oakdale, City of Palmdale, City of Patterson, City of Riverbank, City of Riverside, City of San Pablo, City of Sonora, City of Tehachapi, City of Temecula, City of Tracy, City of Turlock, City of Vacaville, and the County of Santa Cruz. The SIMPL coalition is supported by the City of Fort Jones, the City of Wasco, and the County of Mariposa.
