Complaint Process for Cultivation of Medical Marijuana

Q. Can I submit a complaint about a property that may be growing marijuana in violation of this Ordinance?

Per Section 34A-5, any person may make a complaint relating to this Chapter.

Q. If I complain, is my name kept confidential?

  • Under the County's Ordinance, information regarding a person making a complaint will be kept confidential and only disclosed to the hearing officer if the matter proceeds to a hearing authorized under the Ordinance. All other information for the compliance program will be subject to the rules and requirements of the California Public Records Act (California Government Code Section 6250 et seq.), and
  • While the County will abide by the confidentiality provisions of Ordinance 4075 the County cannot guarantee that information will remain confidential if disclosure is compelled in any subsequent or associated legal action, pursuant to a valid applicable State or Federal law, or pursuant to a valid court order.
