Butte County Fight Over Medical Pot Could Go Back to Voters

The medical marijuana fight looks like it is headed back to voters. Even as Butte County Supervisors are prepared to move forward with a more stringent plan, opponents are already planning for a referendum drive. Andrew Merkel is the President of Citizens for Compassionate Use. He says it is stunning that county leaders have chosen to disregard the will of the voters and their rejection of Measure A. Supervisors Larry Wahl, Kim Yamaguchi and Bill Connelly are supporting this new version of a medical marijuana ordinance that would be one of the most prohibitive in the state. Supervisors claimed Measure A failed because many of their constituents didn’t understand the ballot measure. There will be a public hearing on the new proposal. The meeting starts at 9am in Oroville.
