Yuba County bans outdoor marijuana grows

The bans on outdoor marijuana grows are sprouting up all over the North State. Now Yuba County has a ban. Supervisors passed the new ordinance to crack down on bigger grows.

The ordinance will replace the existing one that allowed 18 outdoor plants on an acre and as many as 99 plants on 20 acres or more. Supervisors say the illegal outdoor grows were out of control.

Letter: Yuba County Republican Party thanks BOS

The Yuba County Republican Party would like to publicly commend the Yuba County Board of Supervisors for their recent adoption of a revised Marijuana Cultivation Ordinance. After several Public Hearings, presentations by County Staff and the County Sheriff, letters from Educational and Medical Community Leaders, input from the marijuana growers and the concerned public, it was time to make a decision. The Board of Supervisors took the bold step and adopted the Ordinance under an Urgency Declaration. This Declaration caused the Ordinance to become effective immediately.

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.

Now is not the time to relax!

The Yuba County marijuana industry may try a referendum on the new Ordinance by collecting sufficient signatures to force the Ordinance to a vote of the people. They would have thirty days after the final BOS vote to collect 1,242 signatures from registered Yuba County voters. An effort could be made to prevent this by stationing our own teams at key locations. Walmart in Linda for example. Our volunteers would have handout material to discourage people from signing the petition and forms available for a person to remove their name from the Referendum Petition if they had already signed.
