Board to Discuss Marijuana Cultivation

The Board of Super­vi­sors will hold its reg­u­lar morn­ing meet­ing today along with a spe­cial evening ses­sion in order to dis­cuss new guide­lines for med­ical mar­i­juana cul­ti­va­tion. Dur­ing the ses­sion, the board will hold a pub­lic hear­ing on the pro­posed mar­i­juana cul­ti­va­tion ordi­nance, which the Lake County Plan­ning Com­mis­sion rec­om­mended to it last month. If approved, the ordi­nance would pro­hibit out­door cul­ti­va­tion within com­mu­nity growth bound­aries, limit indoor grow­ing and indoor light­ing, set a cap on plants on parcels larger than one acre located out­side of com­mu­nity growth bound­aries, and pro­hibit out­door cul­ti­va­tion within 1,000 feet of schools, parks, sub­stance reha­bil­i­ta­tion facil­i­ties, child care facil­i­ties, nurs­ery schools, and churches.
