Medical Marijuana Committee Forming After Election

A community advisory committee that will recommend permanent medical marijuana growing regulations for Nevada County will not be formed until after the November 8th election. County Supervisor Nate Beason, who was part of an ad hoc committee that came up with the current, interim ordinance, passed in July, says they want to wait until after Proposition 64 is decided, which would also legalize limited recreational marijuana use. And he says there also needs to be more clarification on the state’s new medical marijuana standards…

Beason says there will be no supervisors on the committee, but they will be appointing the membership. In addition to medical marijuana advocates, he anticipates representatives from a broader cross-section of the county, including law enforcement, education, and business. He says he’s not sure how long it will take for the committee to make its recommendations to the Board. But the goal is to have a permanent ordinance in place before next year’s growing season.

T'is long past time for a new 12st amendment. Why:
1. It is bought and sold everywhere. The sale,like alcohol, is unstoppable.
2. The murderous underground is the supplier.
3. Our land is being poisioned and water stolen.
4. I would rather have those with addictive personalities be addicted to cannabis rather than alcohol.
5. Cannabis might have saved my mother's life.
6. At the end of prohibition the standing alcohol army had nothing to do and making cannabis illegal gave them something to do.
7. Cannabis has many medicinal properties.
