Measure A opponents to sue Butte County

Feb 3, 2015 6:26 PM by News Staff

Four months after Butte County voters overwhelmingly approved Measure A, opponents of the new marijuana cultivation rules say they're going to court to stop the measure in its tracks.

Four Butte County residents, all described as ‘qualified' patients under California's proposition 215, are named as plaintiffs in a legal complaint obtained by Action News Now. One of the plaintiffs, Gina Endler, told Action News Now that they expect to file their lawsuit against the county Wednesday.

The suit claims that Measure A, which restricts indoor and outdoor pot grows in an area no larger than 150 square feet conflicts with state law and violates the rights and due process of the plaintiffs.

The suit, when filed, will ask the court to force Butte County to stop enforcing Measure A through permanent injunction.

Measure A took effect on January 5.
