For almost a year, the board has attempted to direct staff to produce a draft cannabis ordinance based on board direction while several consultants have courted marijuana growers with claims county staffers are following their direction.

On February 28, the board reviewed a draft ordinance and assigned then assistant county administrator Guy Savage to make specific changes before putting the draft out for public review.

However, on May 1, county planners James Caruso and Brandi Cummings posted a revised draft ordinance on the county website which bore almost no resemblance to the earlier ordinance. The planners gave the public until May 12 to comment.

Regulation=minding other people’s business….mostly. In this case regulation is 100% meddling, with greed as the motive. No wonder the CS are fighting.

A direct conflict with a already funded anti-drug program.

Dangerous to the public by historically taking laws into their own hands.
