On Dec. 5 the Ukiah City Council plans to make growing pot outdoors a criminal offense. Already the council has by ordinance required that all pot be grown indoors or inside locked garden sheds and limited growing to 12 plants per parcel. The problem is that since this ordinance isn’t much more than a zoning code, it’s being widely ignored by the pot growers and city zoning enforcers don’t want to deal with the vicious dogs and handy weapons the growers harbor at their city addresses and who can blame them? So making it a criminal offense gives the Ukiah Police something to hang onto legally in order to go in and take illegal outdoor plants.
She also mentions that there are two ballot measures in the works to reverse Measure G. As I’ve said before, misuse of the medical marijuana provisions are bound to generate backlashes. The proponents had better start talking.
Meanwhile, if I was conspiracy minded, I might be wondering if PG&E is pushing the Ukiah proposal.
