City ponders regulating medical marijuana cultivation

Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2014 — Medical marijuana growers within the city of Susanville will soon have to comply with a new city ordinance.

At its Wednesday, Aug. 6 meeting, the Susanville City Council introduced and waived the first reading of a new city ordinance regulating where medical marijuana can be grown within the city limits. Violation of the ordinance will be a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not more than $1,000 and imprisonment not to exceed one year.

But Mayor Rod DeBoer asked the council to table the matter due to the absence of two councilmembers — Brian Wilson and Nicholas McBride. The issue will return at the council’s Wednesday, Aug. 20 meeting.

Susanville’s Police Chief Tom Downing brought the ordinance to the council as a public safety issue.
