Visalia, Calif. (KFSN) -- Medical marijuana distributors in Tulare
County have less than a week to shut their doors or they could face
criminal charges.

Jeff Nunes pleaded with the Tulare County Board of Supervisors Tuesday
morning to reconsider a new medical marijuana ordinance they passed
which ultimately is forcing the shutdown of medical marijuana
distributors in Tulare County.

Jeff Nunes said, "I commission more research and meetings with these
groups before we close these medical marijuana distribution centers

Tulare County Sheriff's Deputies served compliance notices to seven
medical marijuana operators giving them ten days to comply with the new

The law essentially requires them to shutdown until there is no conflict
between state and federal regulations. Right now, medical marijuana is
allowed in California, but it violates federal law.

If the medical marijuana operations don't shut down within the ten day
period the sheriff's office says the owners could face arrest or a
possible forced shut down.

That's a risk Jeff Nunes is already preparing for.

Nunes said, "We're trying to get everything prepared especially if
there's jail time I mean there's going to be time away from my family
time away from my job."

Nunes says his operation-- Visalia Compassionate Care-- is in compliance
with state law and wants to keep it open. He says they serve more than
400 patients.

"We have AIDS, cancer glaucoma specicity there are many elements that
cannabis treats especially mental like parkinson kuntington's disease,"
said Nunes.

Captain Mike Boudreaux with the Tulare County Sheriff's Office says if
medical marijuana operations refuse to close down, they'll submit the
case to the district attorney's office, and the distributors could face
state and federal charges.

Capt. Boudreaux said, "Depending on the circumstances surrounding the
case and if the DA's office felt there was sufficient evidence to
support a prosecution there is a possibility of that yes."

Visalia compassionate care and six other medical marijuana operations
could be shut down as early as Sunday.
