County Level Advocacy
We monitor and participate in the development of local regulatory and policy affairs
to ensure your voices are heard.
HCGA engages with the Humboldt County’s Board of Supervisors, Planning Department, Planning Commission, Sheriff, Agricultural Commissioner, Treasurer/ Tax Collector, and County Economic Development Department, the Cities of Eureka, Arcata, Rio Dell, and Fortuna as well as other organizations, groups, nonprofts, businesses, and associations.
What We Do For You
On behalf of licensed Humboldt cannabis businesses, HCGA requested a conversation to address barriers to on-farm trimming on permitted cannabis farms. On-farm trimming has emerged as a top priority for small and independent farms who are seeking to establish a craft cannabis brand.
On 2/9/21, the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to place a permanent moratorium on the cultivation of industrial hemp in Humboldt County.
On Tuesday, February 9, the Board of Supervisors heard a report from the County Economic Development Department, followed by a presentation from the Humboldt County Visitors Bureau (HCVB), on their plan to market Humboldt County’s tourism resources for the next three years.
Be part of our mission to preserve, protect and enhance Humboldt’s world-renowned cannabis.
