California’s Prop 64 in Need of a Tweak

The passage of Proposition 64 in California states people are allowed to grow six plants inside their private residence for personal use—with ‘a private residence’ stated to mean a house, apartment, a mobile home, or a similar dwelling. Basically, this statewide initiative, which voters approved, allows adults to legally use recreational marijuana in their homes.

However, prior to the passage of Proposition 64 Nevada County officials have stated in their marijuana cultivation ordinance that local governments can prohibit such grows. The county’s existing cultivation ordinance prohibits any growing in traditional residential housing and blatantly proclaims this. Grows are basically restricted to larger parcels that have the proper zoning. The change of the ordinance, which will be offered by County Counsel Alison Barratt-Green, will align the ordinance with Proposition 64, and confirm the rights for people to grow indoors for personal use. If Nevada County, much like California, is committed to making the patient’s lives more comfortable with medical marijuana then their supervisors should seek to finalize this ongoing process to tweak their ordinance so it’s in compliance with Prop 64.
