Money Pouring in on the Butte County Med Pot Measures Front

Oct 11, 2014 2:33 PM

Two competing ballot measures regarding rules on growing medical marijuana in the Butte County; Measure A and Measure B, have already raised more than $130,000 in campaign donations.

In short, a vote for Measure A would essentially reaffirm the county's current rules on growing medical marijuana on county lands with the largest growing area allowed at 150 square feet for land 10 acres or more.

Measure B would allow a certain number of mature and "immature" plants on a range of certain acreage sizes with a maximum of 99 plants on 40 acres or more. For more information on both measures, go to this link to the Butte County Elections website:
