Butte Supervisors Rescind Pot Dispensary Ordinance

Butte County Supervisors have rescinded their pot dispensary ordinance because in the words of County Counsel Bruce Alpert and District Attorney Mike Ramsey “dispensaries are already illegal” under current statute. Ramsey says Supervisors passed a dispensary ban for emphasis in October when it really wasn’t needed. Andy Merkel ran North Valley Holistic Health. He says he doesn’t have plans to reopen and test the federal government and their threats to come after dispensary owners.  The decision leaves medicinal marijuana patients with few options as they look for marijuana to relieve their ailments.
