A vote on Measure T, a set of Proposed Amendments to Berkeley's Medical Marijuana Ordinance was on the November 2, 2010 ballot for voters in the City of Berkeley in Alameda County, where it was approved.[1]

Measure T did the following:

  • Restricted dispensaries to commercial areas, which must be at least 600 feet away from any school, bringing Berkeley into compliance with state law
  • Limit cultivation, baking and product development to no more than six locations and would be restricted to West Berkeley's industrial zone.
  • Required compliance with health and safety codes and a Police-approved security plan.
  • Required cultivators to provide free, safe medicine to low-income patients at a medical marijuana dispensary
  • Restricted herbicide and pesticide use to ensure that medicine is as organic as possible
  • Required energy offsets
  • Reconstituted the Medical Marijuana Commission as a standard city commission rather than, as it is currently defined, an autonomous entity.[2]
