Despite the legalization of weed in the state and in the county, San Luis Obispo has been destroying tons of marijuana.

Meanwhile, changes to cannabis laws are coming to Santa Barbara County.

A partnership between a tech nonprofit and several counties could help reduce or wipe out about 50,000 marijuana convictions. Code for America, a nonprofit tech organization, uses computer algorithms to help identify these cases.

And a report from PPIC has found that Lake County has the highest arrest rate in the state. San Francisco has the lowest.

And if you haven't signed up for it yet, you should. California Marijuana Policy is proud to co-host the Southern California Municipal Cannabis Policy Workshop in Long Beach on May 1. The workshop is crafted for local government officials interested in best practices on cannabis policy.
