Education, Regulation, and Enforcement 

The City of Sacramento takes a collaborative approach to the management of cannabis, which includes multiple agencies working together to address cannabis regulation, enforcement and education. This Cannabis Information Center provides links to important information about adult- and medical cannabis use for residents, visitors, and businesses.
We’ve also teamed up with the County of Sacramento to start the conversation with young people in your life about marijuana. Talk to your kids, talk to other parents, and help Sacramento youth focus on their future and say no to consuming marijuana.
Be educated. Be responsible.
