About SANTA MARIA
With a population of about of about 106,000 (2016), Santa Maria is the 67th most populous city in California. The city is best known for its outstanding wine industry and delish BBQ.
Natives ate Pigmy Mammoth
"Indian people have lived along the California coast for thousands of years ......and for thousands of years, Indian canoes have carried people and cargo up and down the Pacific Coast. According to archaeological evidence, nearly 30,000 years ago, Indian people were cooking and eating pygmy mammoth on Santa Rosa Island."
The Santa Maria Valley was originally inhabited by Indigenous peoples that lived well off the land and sea. These people are remembered for their invention of type of a seagoing canoe called the Tomol. This very sophisticated seaworthy vessel was constructed (preferably) from redwood planks and was up to 30 feet long. There is a lot of speculation and even scholarly opinion that these canoe-building peoples originated in part from Polynesia.
In 1769, the indigenous people's lives and culture would be shattered forever. The Spanish settled in the Santa Maria Valley and established several missions after an exploratory mission.
Before the Mexican war of independence in 1821, land was literally given away to European elites and heros. After the war, Mexico deeded the land and sold off plots to individuals.
In 1848, the Hispanic world forever changed with Mexican-American War. Anglo-Americans would run the show and take over the lands. Thanks to some of the richest soil found anywhere, the Santa Maria River Valley would become one of the most productive agricultural areas in the US of A and beyond. Infact, to this day, agriculture remains a key component to the economy.
In or around 1870, settlers built their an amalgamation of houses near present-day Broadway and Main. Quick growth followed and by 1885, the maturing settlement was officially named Santa Maria. Oil was discovered around 1900 and the Union Oil Company began pumping tons of black gold. Many locals sharing in the profits with the spin off industries that supported the oil men and their dogs. Over the next century, thousands of wells were drilled and put into production.
What more could you want? There was lots of beef, dairy, wine, oil, sunshine and more? But now, what do we have?

The Latest Cannabis Ordinances, MMJ Permits, Marijuana Zoning, Meetings and News
MEETING - Santa Maria City Council discusses medical marijuana - 2015
“We felt like this was something we really wanted to be a part of.” - Matt Suett of Surterra Holdings.
Surterra is a heavy hitter in the medical cannabis industry on the East Coast and holds one of only six licenses issued by the state of Florida to cultivate, process, and dispense medical marijuana under the state’s restrictive laws.
Now, thanks to medical marijuana regulations passed by California lawmakers last year, the company turned its gaze westward and is looking to invest and expand in the Golden State.
Surterra isn’t the only group courting Grover Beach. Representatives from Elite Care, which recently came into the area from San Francisco, and The Monarch, a medical marijuana startup with ties to Colorado and Illinois, were also present at the meeting - all three encouraged the council to move forward on the regulation and taxation issue.
