Supes begin process for marijuana ordinance; Growers association prepares to file referendum paperwork

Supporters and opponents of tighter medical marijuana restrictions in Yuba County are expected to be out in force once again this week before the county Board of Supervisors.
With informal workshops that resulted in packed chambers behind them, supervisors will start the more formal process of considering a new marijuana cultivation ordinance.
At the same time, those supporting tougher restrictions or opposed to repealing the county's existing ordinance are drawing more definite battle lines.

Eric Salerno, vice president of the Yuba County Growers Association, said his organization is prepared to file paperwork seeking a voter referendum on the issue. A Yuba Patients Coalition Political Action Committee has also been formed, he said.
All the referendum paperwork is waiting for, Salerno said, is final adoption of the proposed ordinance that would ban outdoor grows, action that likely would be considered in March.
