Sacramento council considers rules for growing pot
Sacramento planners are recommending that the City Council approve an ordinance allowing marijuana cultivation within the city limits, provided growers obtain a business permit, pay taxes and comply with operating regulations. The proposed change comes after voters OK’d legalizing recreational marijuana on Nov. 8. The ordinance also would allow medical marijuana dispensaries to deliver to qualified patients. The council will meet at 6 p.m. in its City Hall chambers at 915 I St.
