Monterey County board taps cannabis fund again for COVID-19 spending

SALINAS — Cannabis revenue has again come to Monterey County’s rescue on COVID-19.

On Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors by a unanimous vote again dipped into a cannabis tax revenue fund to cover up to about $6.9 million in the county’s pandemic response, much of it planned future spending through the end of the calendar year. The board also agreed to tap the cannabis account for $250,000 for the Food Bank of Monterey County approved in June as bridge funding until the county can conduct an independent assessment of the food bank operation.
