In Adelanto Tour, Assemblyman Gets Taste of Commercial Cannabis Industry

As mentioned in the Victorville Daily Press, August 9, 2017, Assemblyman Jay Obernolte became more acquainted with the city’s burgeoning commercial cannabis industry. Obernolte said he felt impressed by the number of job opportunities for locals and capital involved in the market. Manny Serrano, an Edible Arrangements owner and executive with MJRX Corporation, led the circuit, beginning at a pending cannabis dispensary, to a series of cultivation and manufacturing facilities. Obernolte said he is simply interested in the happenings of his district. And with sky-high revenue projections and significant sums of money being invested here, it’s likely there is no bigger development in the district than Adelanto’s complete embrace of cannabis, which has already been credited for eradicating its budget deficit. Obernolte was introduced to permitted cultivation and manufacturing facilities, where he appeared surprised by the technical know-how required to run operations and the medical considerations that guide them. In a sort-of stump speech directed at Obernolte, Mayor Rich Kerr lauded the industry’s potential as a boon not only for Adelanto but for the region as a whole. Still, it was clear that the city’s resurgence was front in mind.
