Board launches marijuana ordinance process

The board of supervisors on Tuesday endorsed a proposed ordinance that would limit medical marijuana grows in Mariposa County to 12 plants. A public hearing on the issue is expected by the end of the year. 

The proposed ordinance is modelled on ones recently approved in Merced and Tehama counties. 

At Tuesday's meeting, several medical marijuana users said a 12-plant limit would be too restrictive. Other speakers said county marijuana production has turned into a problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.
