Advocacy Group Wants Medical Marijuana Regualations Not Bans

A national medical marijuana advocacy organization says California cities and counties should regulate the cultivation of medical marijuana instead of banning it.

The memo published is part of a project by Americans for Safe Access. The group supports patients and advocates against bans on growing and pushes for local licensing and the regulation of medical marijuana businesses. The Record Bee reports, In Lake County regulations vary, with Lakeport, Clearlake and the county establishing different limits. Clearlake is set to again attempt a change in their ordinance. Mendocino County doesn’t ban medical marijuana cultivation in its unincorporated areas, but currently has a 25 plant per parcel limitation. The Board of Supervisors’ marijuana ad hoc committee is considering revisions in the new year, as the state’s new medical marijuana regulatory package starts Friday.
