Butte County, CA
Restrictions on Cultivation of Medical
Marijuana (Ordinance No. 4051)
How Was This Ordinance Developed?:
The County Administrator coordinated a committee with representatives of qualified patients/growers, property owners and County staff to create a "compromise Ordinance" that would attempt to balance the interests of all parties. After a dozen meetings, this Ordinance was presented to the Board of Supervisors. They adopted the Ordinance with the requirement that County staff monitor issues with implementation and report back towards the end of 2013 and recommend any changes.
