Butte County D.A. Weighs in on Measure A Defeat

It appears Butte County leaders will have to craft another medical marijuana cultivation ordinance in the wake of the apparent defeat of Measure A. The county’s Chief Law Enforcement Officer says the matter will not affect how he handles marijuana prosecution. District Attorney Mike Ramsey says the ordinance was a land use issue, not a criminal one, but he thinks the Board was in error in how the ordinance was crafted.  He adds many voters were confused about Measure A and thought a no vote meant voting against pot cultivation, when it actually meant getting rid of the county’s proposed medical marijuana ordinance.
