Zoning for Reefer

With growing concern over safety, Chico, CA, is considering creating new zoning restrictions to control where medical marijuana can be grown.

"Faced with concerns from a Chico woman two doors down from a home growing medical marijuana, city councilors on the council's Internal Affairs subcommittee directed staff to look into making changes in the city's Municipal Code that could restrict growing to areas zoned for light industrial use.

However, because the city's Planning Department is currently immersed in the process of updating the city's General Plan, any zoning change recommendations will come as time allows.

In the meantime, the Police Department and code enforcement staff will put together a list of recommendations and guidelines for medical marijuana growers on ways they can avoid annoying their neighbors and stay safer from anyone seeking to steal the plants."
