Cannabis Permit Applications

Permit Sonoma will begin accepting permit applications for commercial and medical cannabis businesses on Wednesday July 5, 2017.

While Permit Sonoma will be issuing the majority of the cannabis permits, the Department of Agriculture/Weights & Measures will issue the smaller outdoor permits — under 10,000 square feet in Diverse Agriculture and Land Extensive Agriculture and up to 25 plants in Land Intensive Agriculture. Contact the Department of Agriculture/Weights & Measures at (707) 565-2371 to schedule an intake appointment for these permits.

Early Permit Center Hours

In anticipation of an increase in customers starting on July 5, Permit Sonoma's Permit Center (Public Lobby area) will have additional staffing and processes in place to serve the cannabis customers and to limit the impact on existing Permit Sonoma customers. The Permit Center will also extend public hours on July 5, operating from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. We appreciate your patience during this time of increased business.
