The Nevada County Sheriff's Office has launched a marijuana cultivation website to allow residents to research marijuana growing regulations in their neighborhood.

The site gives a direct link to codes governing marijuana cultivation, and allows people to access county mapping software for a quick glimpse into areas where cultivation is allowed and those where it is restricted, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release. Sheriff’s officials advise people to refer to the county codes for specifics regarding the growing regulations for their area or parcel.

The marijuana cultivation website can be accessed directly, https://marijuana.mynevadacounty.com/, or through the Sheriff’s Office’s home website, http://www.mynevadacounty.com/nc/sheriff/Pages/Home.aspx.

The Sheriff’s Office on Monday also announced the launch of its official Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/Nevada-County-Sheriffs-Office-1765256080411949/, which will feature breaking news, news releases and information on the department’s day-to-day operations, officials said.
