MARIJUANA GROW HOUSES: How many plants are too many?
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
Hopefully you will remember the story The Press-Enterprise wrote about the houses in Eastvale that had been converted into marijuana grow-houses.
We also wrote about the Special Enforcement Team deputies who uproot these operations.
Well, the other day we received an email from an anonymous person who mentioned these Eastvale farming operations and correctly pointed out that there is no limit to the number of plants you can grow for medicinal-marijuana use. Good enough.
I ran this person’s letter past a law-enforcement officer I know, and he pointed out something that the letter-writer left out: Why, if these people who are growing marijuana in Eastvale are doing so for legitimate medicinal purposes, did they illegally bypass the electrical system? And why did they damage the property they were renting by making wholesale changes to the house?
Anyway, here is the letter from the marijuana advocate, word for word. These are his opinions, not ours.
“City to pass anti-pot growing ordinance soon. The City needs to be very careful in doing it so they don’t trash the rights of qualified patients who grow their own lawful medicine. One size does not fit all. Not everyone who uses med marijuana is a pot head, a drug addict, or to ‘get high’.
“Take caution and Note that Prop 215 does not establish any limits on where or the amount of med marijuana qualified patients can cultivate for themselves; none whatsoever. The Legislature tried to limit how many plants can be grown by a qualified patient, and the state Supreme Court ruled that was an “unconstitutional amendment of Prop 215″ because the voters did not vote on any such numerical limits; People v. Kelley.
