GV Opposes Unlimited Medical Cannabis Deliveries

Council member, Jan Arbuckle, clarified the Council opposes giving up local control in regards to cannabis related issues.

Grass Valley currently bans all types of cannabis related businesses. One person did speak against the letter stating that some patients are too sick to travel to a dispensary.

Vice Mayor Lisa Swarthout reinforced the issue is not about marijuana, its about local control.
Diana Gamzon, with the Nevada County Cannabis Alliance, spoke in support of the letter and hopes the issue will also reopen discussions about a Grass Valley ordinance.
Police Chief Alex Gamelgard also supported the letter for the local control issue and also from a law enforcement perspective.
