Applicants that have passed the initial cuts in a bid to secure permits to sell storefront cannabis products in Manteca are being interviewed next week. City Manager Toni Lundgren indicated the city’s review process of applicants is ahead of schedule. That means the city likely will issue the first permits before year’s end.
