Growers Seek Ordinance Modifications

With the first growing season under the new Nevada County Marijuana Ordinance completed as outdoor gardens have been harvested, the Americans for Safe Access-Nevada County organization is already planning on how to move forward with planning gardens next year.

Under the Nevada County Ordinance, it is not the number of plants per patient but the square footage of a garden that is causing concerns. The restrictive space allotment causes overcrowding of plants leading to growing issues.
