MEDOCINO COUNTY: Supervisors Put Marijuana Issue on Ballot
County supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to place an initiative to legalize the use of recreational marijuana on the November ballot, the AP/Contra Costa Times reports. The Green Party-sponsored measure would prohibit local law enforcement officials from "hassling" anyone with 25 or fewer "flowering adult female marijuana plants or the equivalent in dried marijuana." Noting that the initiative is more a statement about marijuana rather than an attempt to counter federal and state law, Board of Supervisors Chair Michael Delbar said, "It is nothing more than a policy statement. It's clearly illegal." County Counsel Peter Klein said that if passed, the measure would be unenforceable (4/27).This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
