I almost didn’t get in to the Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday afternoon to cover the Medical Marijuana growing ordinance proposed by the Nevada County Sheriff. It was a shove but the crowd was very polite in opening a path for me to the media table. For that I say Thank You. The estimated crowd was around 300 people and they were spilling out of the Supervisors chambers and into the lobby where many of them had to stand to listen to the hearing on external speakers. At least I had a chair and again I am thankful. The meeting went on for nearly 6 hours. I think it’s telling that of those that testified 13 were in support of an ordinance and 31 testified against it. Lets see what happens when the Supervisors visit the issue again on May 8.
