Lawsuit takes on Yuba County pot ordinance

Yuba County's new medical marijuana cultivation ordinance is cost-prohibitive for most patients to abide by and unconstitutionally deprives them of growing their own plants, a lawsuit filed against the county states.
The suit filed late Thursday by four county growers also challenges the Board of Supervisors' approval of the more restrictive pot growing regulations as an urgency ordinance. It says the county didn't identify any circumstances to make the ordinance an urgency matter, which meant it went into effect immediately instead of after a 30-day waiting period.
