Pot proponents scorn Yuba County supervisors

Four of five Yuba County supervisors walked out of their board chambers Tuesday morning amid a barrage of vitriolic catcalls from marijuana supporters. They returned to send two cannabis-related initiatives to the voters.

As expected, supervisors unanimously approved a consent agenda that included consolidating separate marijuana cultivation and dispensary initiatives with the June primary election. Matters on the consent agenda include items approved en masse.

While the outcome wasn't a surprise, the atmosphere was the most highly-charged of a series of Yuba County medical marijuana public sessions stretching back into 2014. The 45 or so people in the audience was fewer than many earlier meetings, but it was the first time things had gotten out of control to the point where the meeting was stopped.
