No Pot on Tomorrow’s Supe Agenda

[Email from Supervisor Mark Lovelace]

There seems to be a persistent rumor out there that our Board will be having a discussion of [Medical Marijuana] policy at tomorrow’s meeting, and I’m told there has been a big push to get a lot of people to drive up from SoHum to be there. In fact, we have nothing at all related to this subject on our agenda. Can you help get the word out to people that we will not be discussing marijuana policy tomorrow? While people are always welcome to address us on any subject during public comment (at 1:30), I’d hate to have people driving all the way up here expecting a discussion only to find out that it’s not on the agenda.

Thanks for your help!

    Governor Signs Law for Increased Local Control of Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

    On August 31, 2011, Governor Brown signed into law Assembly Bill (AB) 1300, which strengthens the authority of local governments to regulate medical marijuana collectives and cooperatives. AB 1300 establishes that cities or other local governing bodies can adopt and enforce local ordinances regulating the location, operation, or establishment of medical marijuana cooperatives and collectives. The Bill also allows local governments to implement civil and criminal enforcement of those local ordinances. AB 1300 becomes law effective January 1, 2012.

    So, like we have all been saying, until this passed there was nothing in law anywhere giving the cities or counties that authority. Lets see if this survives court challenges.

    If an item isn’t on the posted Agenda, the Sups can’t discuss it. People can bring it up during Oral Communications, but the Sups can only listen.

    Wait for the lawyers and staff to digest the Gov’s decision.

    Supervisors cannot discuss, but they don’t have to sit like bumps on a log, they can briefly comment or ask questions during Oral Communications.

    Gov code 54954.2. (a) (2) No action or discussion shall be undertaken on any item not appearing on the posted agenda, except that members of a legislative body or its staff may briefly respond to statements made or questions posed by persons exercising their public testimony rights under Section 54954.3. In addition, on their own initiative or in response to questions posed by the public, a member of a legislative body or its staff may ask a question for clarification, make a brief announcement, or make a brief report on his or her own activities. Furthermore, a member of a legislative body, or the body itself, subject to rules or procedures of the legislative body, may provide a reference to staff or other resources for factual information, request staff to report back to the body at a subsequent meeting concerning any matter, or take action to direct staff to place a matter of business on a future agenda.
