Supervisors To Consider Medical Marijuana, Animal Shelter, Headwaters Projects Tuesda

Thread starter #1


EUREKA -- In a busy end-of-year session, the Humboldt County Board of
Supervisors is expected to look at a medical marijuana ordinance, send
the county treasurer in search of money to build a new animal shelter,
and decide on a list of Headwaters Fund-related projects.

Second District Supervisor Roger Rodoni has brought forth a proposed
county ordinance that would effectively make District Attorney Paul
Gallegos' medical marijuana guidelines the law of the county. The
ordinance is needed because a new state law goes into effect in
January aimed at establishing clearer medical pot guidelines. The law
restricts patients to having no more than 8 ounces of dried marijuana
and no more than six mature or 12 immature plants.

But the law allows counties and cities to retain or enact medical
marijuana guidelines that exceed the state's limits. The board's
ordinance reflects Gallegos' guidelines, allowing medical pot patients
to have up to 3 pounds of dried buds per year. Cultivation is
restricted to what will fit within a 100-square-foot vegetative canopy.
