The County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to ban all commercial cannabis activities — medical and non-medical — in unincorporated areas and took a first pass at regulating personal cultivation.
The move extends a ban on medical marijuana dispensaries in unincorporated areas that has been in place since 2010 and broadens the prohibition to include the cultivation, manufacture, testing and distribution of the drug for other than personal use.
The new ordinance is designed to give the county more time to develop a comprehensive set of regulations given statewide legalization. It limits residents to growing six plants, with most single-family homeowners allowed to plant inside or outdoors, while apartment dwellers are restricted to indoor cultivation.
