It’s likely Butte County will have a very similar medical marijuana ordinance in 2014 as they did this year.
The Butte County Board of Supervisors voted on a final reading of Ordinance 4051 today, otherwise known as the cultivation of medical marijuana.
Supervisor Larry Wahl told Action News Now supervisors voted four to one again today to approve the ordinance.
As it stands, the approved ordinance does not change plant counts, meaning large operations can still grow up to 99 plants.
A significant change is grows must be located on a legal residence with permitted water and sewer lines.
Supervisor Wahl, who had the one vote of opposition, said he'll push for a stricter ordinance for the next year when the board meets again on January 14th.
