ASA-Nevada County- Revisons Don’t Address Gardens

Americans for Safe Access-Nevada County Chapter is preparing to combat the County’s Cannabis Cultivation Ordinance at the ballot box.
The group is in the final preparations for a planned initiative drive after their request for mediation was rejected by the Board in a closed door session. Although the Board refused to mediate, they will be voting on small revisions to the Ordinance at their meeting on March 26. Chair of ASA Nevada County Chapter, Patricia Smith says the revised draft acknowledges the right of collective grows but does not increase the garden size based on the number of people in the collective.

By state law, each qualified patient has the right to grow six plants for medicinal use.  Smith says the Nevada County Ordinance does not provide growers enough space to grow the maijuana they need.

Even areas with unlimited acreage zoned for agricultural use are limited to 1000 square feet which Smith says might be enough fro one or maybe two patients to grow.

Meanwhile, ASA-NC’s lawsuit challenging the legality of the Ordinance continues to make its way through the court system. The two parties are scheduled for a settlement hearing on April 22.
