We support Prop 215 Medical Marijuana Laws and generally believe in live-and-let live, but...

  • The vast majority of marijuana grows in Butte County are for profiteering and illegal drug trafficking
  • Much of the product is shipped across state lines where it can fetch as much as $8000 per pound!
  • Problems include violent crimes, environmental damage, health impacts and nuisance.
  • It is difficult to criminally prosecute violators because of the vagueness of Proposition 215
  • Land-use ordinances such as 4075 provide much-needed enforcement tools to curb the rampant green rush plaguing Butte County

We support the amended (adopted 2-11 2014) Butte County ordinance 4075 imposing sensible restrictions on Medical Marijuana Grows. Here is a summary of the changes. It limits cultivation by area: 50, 100 and 150 sq. ft. (depending upon parcel size). Previously up to 99 plants could be grown! Medical patients can apply for a hardship allowance to ensure they can grow the medicine they need. The amended ordinance was a direct response to citizens' uproar over the increase in crime, nuisance, ecological damage and other hardships attributable to the 2013 Marijuana growing season. A series of six public board meetings were held from Oct. 2013 through Feb 2014, after which the board proposed and voted unanimously in favor of, increased restrictions. A successful referendum petition paid for by growers forced the issue to a vote (Measure A) in November 2014. The public approved the vote by more than 60% and the new ordinance went into effect in January 2015. For details on the new ordinance visit http://www.buttecounty.net/stayinthebox.
