You're both incorrect.
There is NOTHING in Proposition 215 that limits what patients may grow and consume. Nothing.
SB (state bill) 420 tried to correct that. In '08 the courts struck down the limits of SB420, BUT, the courts retained the ID portion of the program.
IF one carries a state ID card (as issued either by recommending 'facility' or the county health department for various prices), THEN one is limiting themselves to 12 immature plants (which the state defines as unsexed) or the 6 mature (which the state defines as *any* size plant of which sex is known--that means a 2" clone is considered a mature plant). A good attorney could argue the and/or issue, as well as combinations of mature and immature plants.
Outside that, counties and cities are enacting their own zoning ordinances and other laws to force folks to either not grow at all, or to keep numbers way down.
However, there is absolutely NOTHING in the state law which says this. I, too, am unsure where people are getting their numbers and information from.
Not all counties make finding their local laws and ordinances easy, but it's where anyone who's considering moving should start.
My statements are facts learned through my experience fighting my own county when they enacted zoning restrictions, and through my attorney.
