Supervisors endorse 24-plant cap

Wednesday, March 12, 2013, 9:30 a.m. - The board of supervisors on Tuesday, March 11 voted to set a per-parcel cap for medical-marijuana gardens at 24 plants. A majority of board members will need to support the proposal again on March 25 for it to become law, however.

The 24-plant limit would apply only to gardens on parcels with multiple medical cannabis patients or caregivers, however. A 12-plant limit would apply to properties with one patient or caregiver.

More than 35 speakers stepped up, or rolled in wheelchairs, to share their views. About three-quarters argued for a higher per-parcel allowance than the 12-plant limit suggested by the county planning department—and backed by Sheriff Doug Binnewies and District Attorney Tom Cooke.
