Half Moon Grow license approved
San Mateo County approved its first cannabis license on Nov. 15, making Half Moon Grow the first licensed cannabis operation in the county. The Planning and Building Department approved a license for small mixed-light cultivation in one of the greenhouses.
A previous owner constructed the other greenhouses without permits, the county letter said. Officials said the cultivation licenses for these buildings cannot be approved until the greenhouses are legalized. There is an ongoing coastal development permit process for those buildings.
The new business is located north of Half Moon Bay, near Frenchmans Creek Road. It will not be allowed to conduct retail sales.
