New San Luis Obispo County medical marijuana ordinance in the works

Last October, Gov. Jerry Brown officially signed into law three bills, Assembly Bill 266, Assembly Bill 243 and Senate Bill 643 that provide a framework in which the medical marijuana industry will operate within the state of California. Licensing, taxing, shipping and packaging, among others - are all outlined in the new laws.

However, the new state law stipulated that counties in California can either implement their own ordinances if they choose, or follow the new state laws. As a result, local areas, such as San Luis Obispo County, are taking action.

Last month, San Luis Obispo County officials indicated that an ordinance is in the works and will outline provisions regarding the number, size and growth location of the marijuana plants. The ordinance also plans to address concerns surrounding the large number of greenhouse cultivation in the area.

According to Supervisor Bruce Gibson, time is of the essence. He recently stated that action must be taken in order to adequately prepare for the statewide legalization of marijuana-a measure to be included in this upcoming November ballot.
