Medical Marijuana Issue Back before Butte Supervisors

Voters in Butte County will now decide whether to overturn a Butte County ordinance on growing medical marijuana. The Board of Supervisors is expected to certify the issue today so voters can decide it as part of the June 5th Primary Election. County Administrator Paul Hahn says the county ordinance says people can grow medical marijuana, within limits.  Critics charged the ordinance originally adopted by the county was too restrictive in that grows were prohibited on less than a half acre. The Butte County ordinance did allow grows in residential areas but only on property of more than a half acre.
