Fate of Nevada County’s medical marijuana measures hangs with high court

Can Nevada County’s medical marijuana measures survive a legal challenge? County officials are confident that the ordinances the Board of Supervisors passed in May follow state law.
Patricia Smith, president of the local Americans for Safe Access group in Nevada County, a pro-medical marijuana group, isn’t so sure. She says a state appeals court ruling this week in Los Angeles bodes well for opponents of local government measures regulating marijuana grows and banning dispensaries of the drug. But Smith agrees that the California Supreme Court will issue the key decision…and wonders why supporters of the Nevada County measures are so confident of the outcome.
