Riverside County to Expand Prohibition Against Cannabis Cultivation!Post: Willow
Riverside County Looks to Expand Prohibition Against MMJ Cultivation!
Riverside County is considering an ordinance to regulate all marijuana cultivation in the unincorporated areas of Riverside County. The ordinance is expected to be very restrictive similar to the one recently enacted by Nevada County.

Cities and counties are taking the Supreme Court decision allowing them to ban collectives as a green light to enact all kinds of bans and draconian ordinances including their latest gambit to ban delivery services. Police are so ecstatic over what they now see as their new Supreme Court given power to undermine Prop. 215 that they are now agitating for restrictions on cultivation including outright bans.

New lawsuits are sure to come and it is important to lay the groundwork now for them by challenging whatever ordinances are drafted if they are unreasonable and impede the ability of patients to cultivate their own medicine.

Although the arguments used in the Supreme Court case failed to persuade the court to ban bans, there are other arguments that can be raised. Plus this time it is critical that the court be fully aware of the community support for the rights of patients – a glaring, if not fatal error that was made in the Riverside case.

Legalization is just around the corner and that will solve most if not all of our problems. In the meantime, we must not get discouraged and must keep on fighting for patient rights.
