Chaos Erupts as Nevada County CA Passes Grow Limits

The from Nevada County reports online that county growers packed the supervisor's meeting Tuesday as they witnessed the passing of restrictive growing regulations for medical marijuana growers.

Order broke down and angry outbursts cascaded moments after the Nevada County Board of Supervisors approved a medical marijuana ordinance Tuesday that placed limitations on grow operations in the county.

The board approved both an urgency ordinance that took effect immediately and a regular ordinance, which necessitates additional public hearings.

On both issues the vote was 4 to 1, with Supervisor Terry Lamphier dissenting.

As soon as the first vote was announced, members of the crowd stood up from their chairs and began yelling at the board.

“This isn't fair,” one shouted. And “You didn't listen,” another followed.

One unidentified member of the crowd confronted Sheriff Keith Royal and accused him of taking jobs and money away from residents, before being escorted by officers from the chambers.

Order was restored for a moment, before a crowd of people rushed into the chamber chanting “Vote them out! ... Vote them out!”

“Obviously, not everybody is happy,” said District 2 Supervisor Ed Scofield, who made the motion to approve the urgency ordinance. The majority of ordinance supporter speaking Tuesday were from Scofield's south county district. “But we had to get something on the ground.”

Lamphier said he supported an marijuana ordinance, but not the one approved by his fellow supervisors, saying it was hastily put together and a few more details needed to be ironed out before it was passed.

“There was a lot of confusion, a lot of misunderstanding,” Lamphier said, adding he expected the county to be sued and to incur a lengthy and expensive legal battle.

When asked if a lawsuit was imminent, president of the Nevada County Chapter of Americans for Safe Access Patricia Smith said:

“Absolutely, I expect to file suit like tomorrow.”

“If I'd had my druthers, we would have gone back to the table to work out these last issues and concerns,” she continued. “The passing of the urgency ordinance really limits the voice of the voters as there can be no referendum (or other avenues of recourse).”
Sounds like these rascals may get voted out!

It's truely sad that many politians and lobbyists are clinging to an old America that has obviously not been working.

What they are failing to understand; or more than likely just not giving a shit about is the growing black-market value because of these crackdowns.

I think in time (hopefully) things will change and common sense will reign supreme, but for now it seems to be a continued idoitcracy.

From the article about the Fresno County Pot Crack Down;

"Fresno County Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Gregg Collins, ..."

“They can no longer hide behind the shield of the medical marijuana law. The President sent his scientists out and determined that it is a ‘schedule one” drug which has no medicinal value. They have no reason to possess it, whether it’s heroine or marijuana,” Collins said.

****************************** ****************************** ****

Well that pretty much sums up their attitude; that cannabis is a drug just like heroin and there will never be a legitimate use for it, we won't allow it, irregardless of what the voters of the state have decided.

The guy is an ignoranus.

its absolute BULLSHIT that real estate values are down because of marijuana growers....

in fact its the other way around...certain property values are only as high as they are BECAUSE of marijuana growers...if there wasnt any money in growing pot, most mountain property would only be worth 100k, but a 20 acre plot with a nice clearing, well, house, outhouses, etc in mendo/humboldt or grass valley is gonna run you damn near half a million dollars...because it could make the owner a half million dollars if done right...

the marijuana market is the only thing propping up many of these counties..

Squaw valley is just the name of the resort. It is located in Olympic Valley.
One of my favorite places.
