City of Fremont Marijuana Guidelines and Registration Requirements

City Seal

On November 8, 2016, California voters passed the Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA), legalizing non-medical use of marijuana by persons 21 years of age and over, and the personal cultivation of up to six marijuana plants. Under the AUMA, a state regulatory and licensing system was established to govern the commercial cultivation, testing and distribution of non-medical marijuana, and the manufacturing of non-medical marijuana plants. With the passage of AUMA, the City of Fremont was required to amend the Zoning Ordinance to address non-medical marijuana activities.

On June 6, 2017, the Fremont City Council amended the City of Fremont’s Marijuana Regulation Municipal Code Section 18.190.307. The amendments allow possession, transportation and cultivation of marijuana to the extent expressly authorized under State law, and bans all other marijuana activities not expressly authorized under State law. The amendments also provide reasonable regulations pertaining to the personal cultivation of marijuana, including the establishment of a local registration requirement through the Fremont Police Department. A prohibition of outdoor cultivation and other measures was adopted to protect adjacent properties from cultivation in a manner that would create fire hazards, visual blight, unpleasant odors, excessive energy use, and other objectionable impacts.

Fremont Police Chief Richard Lucero has established an annual registration procedure for the personal cultivation of marijuana within City of Fremont limits. No person shall commence or continue to cultivate marijuana within the City of Fremont without first registering the site of the cultivation. Registration requires name, address, contact information, age verification and property owner verification and/or notification. Please visit the Fremont Police Department's Marijuana Registration webpage to read the City of Fremont guidelines and to register.
