Formerly Legal Cannabis Growers In Calaveras Take Steps To Comply With Ban

Many formerly legal cannabis growers in Calaveras County ripped up plants, cut down plants, and took other steps this week to comply with a ban on commercial cultivation. The ban adopted by the Board of Supervisors in January took full effect Thursday. Earlier in the day, the growers and their lawyers tried to get an appeals court to direct Calaveras Superior Court to restrain the county from enforcing the ban, pending disposition of a preliminary injunction on June 15. That failed. The ban means all cannabis cultivation, except for registered personal use, must cease. Calaveras County administrator, Tim Lutz nor Sheriff Rick DiBasilio have yet to comment on what county staff ,the Sheriff’s Office, Code Enforcement or other departments will be doing to educate, inspect and enforce the ban.
