Americans for Safe Access Nevada County Rally at Rood Center

A group of about 30 supporters of the Marijuana Initiative that qualified as a ballot measure for a potential election gathered at the Rood Center prior to the afternoon session of the Board of Supervisors meeting. The group is lobbying for the Supervisors to move forward with the process so the citizens of Nevada County can decide on the rights of medical marijuana growers. ASA-NC Chairperson Patricia Smith says the Supervisors will be presented with the information and have several options.

Smith is unclear of the reason for a potential study since a study wasn’t done prior to implementing the current ordinance, and a study wouldn’t change the language of the proposed ordinance. ASA NC has opposed the current marijuana ordinance because it restricts the size of a garden and the number of plants that be grown.

Prior to going into the Supervisors’ meeting Smith urged the crowd to be respectful participants and refrain from restating comments that someone else may make in order for the meeting to proceed in an efficient manner.

I guess restating what someone has said comes from being medicated using and reusing a dangerous drug. Marijuana is a dangerous drug and should not be legal.
Why would anyone in their un-drugged mind say POT is good for you or anyone near you????? Is the community a better place now that a dangerous drug is legal.
You will need to change the name of this POT Heaven to GOT LOTS OF GRASS IN THIS VALLEY, WHY DON'T YOU ALL COME AND LIVE HERE? BETTER THAN HAIGHT ASHBERRY EVERY WAS.
LETS GET STONED AND GO ROB SOMEONE, IT IS LEGAL HERE.

A dangerous drug? Wow! Living in the '40s are we?
If we hadn't spent the last 70 years in prohibition we'd all know cannabis is not the dangerous drug our 'trusted' government has told us (over and over, again!) it is.
Wake up! Do your research. Quit hiding behind all the misinformation! Learn to think for yourself.

"about 30 supporters"?
By my earliest count there were between 70 & 80 supporters in attendance.
The chamber holds approximately 125 seats; most of which were full; most of those supporters.
