Protect Small Cannabis Farmers of Humboldt County
Join Us in Opposing Measure A
What is Measure A?
Measure A, formerly known as the Humboldt Cannabis Reform Initiative (HCRI) is a voter initiative that will appear on the March 5, 2024 ballot in Humboldt County. If approved by voters, it would establish 38 pages of new rules and restrictions applicable to all current, legal cannabis farmers in Humboldt.
Written behind closed doors, the HCRI was never made available for public review before its full text was finalized.
While proponents claim the intent of the HCRI is to restrict industrial-scale cannabis cultivation, the reality is Measure A would have devastating effects on cannabis farmers of all sizes in Humboldt, including the very smallest in the county.

The real impacts of Measure A
Evades public process
Humboldt’s existing cannabis ordinances were developed through hundreds of hours of public input, but Measure A's 38 pages of text were written behind closed doors with no opportunity for public review by farmers, environmental groups, county or state regulators, or the public.
Targets small cannabis farms
Nearly all of the rules and restrictions in the Measure A would be applicable to all legal cannabis cultivators, regardless of size, and many of these restrictions would not be possible to comply with.
Undermines environmental goals
Measure A would undermine the environmental benefits of a regulated market by making legal cultivation non-viable, and its restrictions on new structures would prevent farmers from adding infrastructure for environmental benefit.
Cuts the public out, invites lawyers in
Measure A's poor drafting would lead to a flood of litigation, while prohibiting the Board of Supervisors from making meaningful changes to Humboldt’s cannabis ordinances in response to public input.
