In local news a second cannabis shop will open in Central Contra Costa County. Opened by the son of a former congressman.

The Martinez City Council has chosen the operator for its second retail marijuana dispensary - a firm led by the son of retired longtime U.S. Rep. George Miller.

The council voted 4-0 on Wednesday to award a “conditional certificate” allowing Embarc to apply for a commercial cannabis operating permit.

Mayor Rob Schroder, who sells insurance for a living, recused himself from Wednesday’s vote, as a partner in one of the proposed dispensaries (not Embarc) has a business relationship with Schroder.

Embarc was one of four firms selected as finalists to receive this conditional certificate, and the highest-ranked proposal based on a list of criteria set by the city.

The owner and CEO of Embarc is George Miller IV, the son of U.S. Rep. George Miller and himself a onetime state Assembly candidate.

I dunno, they will have to beat the prices and selection of the delivery services currently available.
