The Middletown Area Town Hall is set to get an update on new medical marijuana legislation and its potential impacts on the community.

MATH will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 11, at the Middletown Community Center, 21256 Washington St.

Meetings are open to the community.

At the January meeting, MATH Secretary Margaret Greenley asked for a discussion of the new medical marijuana legislation, signed into effect by Gov. Jerry Brown in October.

County Supervisor Anthony Farrington will attend the Thursday MATH meeting to discuss the legislation — introduced by state Sen. Mike McGuire, who represents Lake County — and its economic impacts.

McGuire's SB 643 is part of a three-bill package that makes up the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act, as Lake County News has reported.

Also on the agenda will be plans for the annual chili cookoff, thank you letters to those who helped the community during the Valley fire, new Middletown gateway signs and agenda items for the March 10 meeting.

The MATH Board includes Chair Fletcher Thornton, Vice Chair Claude Brown, Secretary Margaret Greenley, and members Linda Diehl-Darms and Gregg Van Oss.

MATH — established by resolution of the Lake County Board of Supervisors on Dec. 12, 2006 — is a municipal advisory council serving the residents of Anderson Springs, Cobb, Coyote Valley (including Hidden Valley Lake), Long Valley and Middletown.

Meetings are subject to videotaping.
