Mariposa County supervisors, in conjunction with the Planning Department, are instituting excessive rules and regulations that only affect legitimate medical marijuana users, not the large cartels. The Sheriffs Office cites the few marijuana crimes that have been committed in the county but doesnt tell you that there are more registered sex offenders in the county than there were violent marijuana-related crimes.
In the case of families in which more than one member requires medical marijuana, new county regulations will deprive one member of the family from being able to cultivate the required marijuana plants. New proposed county regulations would limit the amount of mature marijuana plants to 12 plants per parcel, with the average plant only producing 4 to 5 ounces of usable buds. For edibles, liniment and tinctures, thats 12 to 14 pounds less than is required for a year.
You can see the proposed new regulations by looking up packet 237 from the Board of Supervisors minutes from meetings Oct. 15. Write your county supervisors. If youre hesitant to write, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or P.O. Box 123, Coulterville 95311.
