The Mendocino County Board of Supervisors has adopted a policy and ordinance
regulating the cultivation and possession of medical marijuana.

Each qualified patient or caregiver acting for the patient will be allowed as follows:

• No more than 25 growing marijuana plants, regardless of age, size or condition of
the plants.

• No more than 25 growing marijuana plants per qualified patient, either indoors or
outdoors, per legal parcel, regardless of the number of qualified patients or
caregivers who live on that parcel. A “legal parcel” is defined as a unit of land for
which one legal title exists.

• No more than two pounds of processed marijuana per patient.

Wherever medical marijuana is grown, a copy of a current and valid, state-issued medical marijuana card or physician recommendation may be displayed in such a manner as to allow law enforcement officers to easily see the card without having to enter any building of any type.

Any person who is not the legal owner of a parcel and who is cultivating marijuana on
said parcel shall give written notice to the legal owner of the parcel prior to commencing cultivation of marijuana on said parcel and shall post notice at the cultivation site that the landowner has been informed.

The cultivation of marijuana, in any amount or quantity, shall not be allowed in the
following areas:

• Within 1,000 feet of a youth-oriented facility, a school, or a park; or
• Within 1,000 feet of any school bus stop; or
• Within 1,000 feet of any “church”.

All marijuana grown outside of any building must be fully enclosed by a fence at least six (6) feet in height. The fence must include a lockable gate that is locked at all times when a qualified patient or caregiver is not in the immediate area. Said fence shall not violate any other ordinance, code section or provision of law regarding height and location restrictions.
