County Supervisor Says More People are Supporting Measure W

Nevada County Supervisor Nate Beason says the Board heard from dozens of people during public comment on Measure W about why the county should not go ahead with a ban on all outdoor growing of marijuana, and limit indoor grows to 12 plants. But he says there is another faction, perhaps more silent that wants Measure W to pass.

Beason says his message to them is thank you very much, but please make more noise in public…

Recently a law suit was filed against the County on behalf of the Herd family who’s son Silas has stopped having seizures after he began a treatment with a marijuana tincture. But Beason says he’s heard from other families with children too.

Beason says if Measure W passes in the June Primary Election, Silas’ family will have the option to challenge it again in court.
Also tomorrow night the Nevada County Democratic Central Committee is hosting a forum on the pros and cons of Measure W with Board of Supervisors Chair Dan Miller arguing for it and California Growers Association Chair Jonathan Collier arguing against it. The meeting will be at Peace Lutheran Church on West Main St. in Grass Valley with social period beginning at 5:30 p.m.
