City of Colusa approves special use, regulatory permits for Green Leaf Processors


Company to begin operating by the end of August

All of the requisite permits and agreements are in place, and Green Leaf Processors, Inc. is poised to be the first commercial cannabis business operating in the City of Colusa.

Last Tuesday, the council voted 3-2 to approve special use and regulatory permits for Green Leaf Processors’ proposed location on the north end of Fifth St. Councilmen Dave Womble and Dave Markss voted against issuing the permits, remaining consistent with their previously stated position that the riverfront location was not appropriate for a cannabis processing facility.

“They’re good to go,” said City Manager Jesse Cain. “They have to get their final occupancy permit once they’re done, and they can start producing. They have all the permits needed. They just need to have a building permit and to meet all the obligations outlined in the development agreement, special use permit, and the regulatory permit.”

Cain said that the facility could be operational by the end of August.
