Lawyer Fights Shasta County Marijuana Zoning Law

Record Searchlight

7/31/2015

SHASTA LAKE, California – Several hundred medical marijuana plants were seized by law enforcement in June, but no citations have been issued. Now a Redding lawyer is seeking compensation for plants seized by the county.

More than 500 marijuana plants were seized by the Shasta County Sheriff’s Department on June 3 from the non-profit collective Medicine for our Military in Shasta Lake, according to the Redding law offices of Berg and Associates.

Sheriff’s officers, along with Shasta County Code Enforcement, seized the plants because they violated a county ordinance restriction that outlaws all outdoor marijuana cultivation in Shasta County. Medicine for our Military assists Shasta County veterans with other resources besides medical marijuana, according to Donald “Blue” Mobley, who said that law enforcement seized all of his plants and didn’t issue any citations.

Two Los Angeles City Council members want local officials to stop issuing tax certificates to dispensaries banned under Proposition D, which allows just 135 MMJ centers to operate.

The city has issued about 945 tax certificates to companies that describe themselves as marijuana dispensaries, Councilwoman Nury Martinez said. The certificates are not a license to operate, rather they’re a way for the city to collect taxes.

Los Angeles collects about $3 million annually from dispensaries, most of which do not comply with Proposition D, she said.
