The Tehama County Board of Supervisors is frustrated with the Cannabis Research Committee, a group we told you about just a couple of days ago that is proposing a zoning ordinance meant to regulate personal and commercial cannabis cultivation, among other things.

We met with Dennis Garton, the District 3 supervisor, to ask some questions about the reasoning behind the county’s ban on outdoor and commercial growth of cannabis.

However, he would only talk about details specific to the group's case and would not answer any questions about marijuana in general.

On Tuesday, we did a story about the Cannabis Research Committee and its zoning-based cannabis ordinance they submitted to the board, which would regulate personal and commercial cannabis cultivation, distribution, sales, manufacturing, and testing in a manner consistent with state law.

Now, we were looking for the board's perspective about why members are against it, but Garton refused to answer any questions.

He later apologized, and said he's frustrated, because he feels like the CRC isn't willing to come to the table.

The board has been trying to establish a committee to for the two groups to get together and talk about this proposal, but instead, the CRC filed a formal challenge to their ordinance, which now takes precedence.

“We had a meeting with them 3 weeks ago to set up a committee to meet with them, and they filed this unbeknownst to us, prior to us having a chance to set up any meetings,” he said.

He said the CRC told the board they plan to file an initiative to put this on the June ballot regardless of what the board does.

Garton said they are still trying to establish a committee to meet with them, but this formal action now takes precedence over anything else.
