The Fresno Planning Commission voted 4-2 on May 16 to recommend passage of a permanent ban on growing medical marijuana outdoors anywhere in the city of Fresno. The marijuana ordinance is set for hearing and adoption by the Fresno City Council at 9:30 a.m. this Thursday, June 21.
I was one of three people to speak against the ban — many thanks to Dustin and Diane — and also submitted detailed written comments regarding the proposed ban and some of the underlying legal issues. The hyperlinked version of those comments appears below. More information about Fresno’s medical marijuana laws.
