Humboldt County Supervisor Named President of California Cannabis Authority

Humboldt County Supervisor Estelle Fennell has been elected president of the California Cannabis Authority. Supervisor Fennell is the first to lead the the newly-established Joint Powers Authority. The board was created by the CSAC Finance Corporation to assist local governments with cannabis regulations and taxes.

“CCA will develop and manage a statewide data platform that will gather, collect, and analyze information from a myriad of data sources into one resource,” according to a county press release. “The data will help local governments ensure cannabis regulatory compliance and also provide necessary information to financial institutions that wish to work with the cannabis industry.”

Humboldt, Monterey, and San Luis Obispo counties are currently part of the CCA. More counties are expected and encouraged to join.
