Yuba County officials tighten up pot restrictions

Feb 24, 2015 11:33 AM by News Staff

Supervisors in Yuba County will be considering the first reading of a marijuana ordinance that would ban outdoor medical marijuana grows.

The ordinance would limit the number of plants to a dozen inside a structure. Residents are currently allowed to have 18 outdoor plants on an acre or less.

Officials have modeled the new marijuana ordinance after Shasta County's marijuana law.

The supervisors will be conducting the first reading Tuesday afternoon in the board chambers starting at 3 p.m. There will also be a public hearing for residents who have questions.

Officials say it will cost the county an estimated $700,000 to enforce the new ordinance and it will take effect 30 days after the second reading, which is scheduled for March 10.
