NORML Takes Action!
California NORML Opposes Red Bluff Cultivation Ban
Nov 12, 2009
Red Bluff, California - Medical MJ supporters met on November 10, 2009
to oppose Red Bluff's proposed ban on MMJ cultivation, collectives and
dispensaries. Speaking to a packed house of over 150, California NORML
attorney James Silva explained via telephone/microphon e how the
ordinance violates state law and Prop. 215.
The proposed Red Bluff ordinance would effectively deprive patients of
their Prop 215 right to grow medical marijuana, both individually and
collectively. It would go so far as to prohibit caregivers from growing
for their own family members.
California NORML is supporting opposition to the Red Bluff ordinance.
Attorney Bill Panzer has contacted the Red Bluff city attorney to
explain why the proposed draft is in violation of state law. If the
city goes ahead and adopts it, advocates will seek to have it
invalidated through the courts.
A defense fund is being raised to support the Red Bluff challenge.
