County adopts medical marijuana cultivation ordinance
Tuesday, April 28, 2015 — After hearing considerations and holding numerous discussions, the Lassen County Board of Supervisors unanimously adopted a county ordinance for growing medical marijuana.
The measure was presented as an urgency ordinance during a Tuesday, April 22 meeting and according to county counsel Bob Burns, it became effective immediately presuming it is published, according to law.
For the complete ordinance see pages 8 and 9B.
The ordinance is a result of concerns raised last fall when residents complained about large-scale grows in their neighborhoods, primarily Lake Forest and Janesville, which resulted in alleged threats, aggressive dogs, foul smells and an increase in traffic.Add a comment
