Commissioners Boldt, Mielke concerned that they violate federal lawOriginally published November 28, 2012 at 2:26 p.m., updated November 28, 2012 at 4:41 p.m.Clark County is moving toward a ban on collective medical marijuana gardens.
Commissioners Marc Boldt and Tom Mielke both instructed county staff at a Wednesday morning workshop meeting to begin work on a policy that would prohibit the gardens as an acceptable land use in the county. Commissioner Steve Stuart was absent from the meeting.
The gardens allow medical marijuana growers to establish community gardens where as many as 10 patients can grow up to 45 plants. The state approved the gardens last year, but the county placed a moratorium on them until June 2013 to come up with an implementation plan.
More:Boldt and Mielke both said they are concerned that allowing the gardens would fly in the face of federal law, which prohibits marijuana use, sale and cultivation. Commissioners also said they would prefer to wait and see how the federal government handles voter-approved Initiative 502, which will allow adults older than 21 to use recreational marijuana.
Here's the problem for the pot heads: the vote accomplished absolutely nothing. It legalized nothing. The dopers and their comments under this article are completely ignorant of the law and how it works.
We could vote to legalize this crap a DOZEN times, but under our system of law, that it's still illegal federally is the only question... not how badly these morons want to get wasted every day.
Marc and Tom did it right. And until the fed changes the law... the dopers are just gonna have to get over it... and themselves.
