Martinez City Council To Consider Marijuana Cultivation Ordinance

December 5, 2018 8:00 am · 3 comments

The Martinez City Council is scheduled to consider an ordinance limiting indoor growth to six marijuana plants per residence – what state law already allows, according to the council agenda.

The proposed Martinez “personal cultivation of cannabis” ordinance also prohibits any outside cultivation.

Martinez, like some other Bay Area cities, has been in a sort of holding pattern concerning its marijuana laws, regarding both medicinal and non-medicinal uses. Also, as in some other cities, the city has been passing “urgency” ordinances limiting marijuana cultivation and sales until both local and state laws were clarified.

Martinez is also in the midst of crafting a “cannabis management program” that, unlike many of its neighboring cities, would include approving cannabis-related businesses. The initial plan being considered would include two retail operators, two deliverers, a manufacturer, a distributor and a testing lab (but no commercial cultivation).

Tonight’s council meeting begins at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 525 Henrietta St.

Indoor grows have a lot of expensive issues that need to be covered. Dedicated electrical circuits for the Grow-Room, fans, ventilation(so the excessive moisture doesn’t ruin the house). Solar Grows won’t set the apartment house on fire.

I reckon future housing developments will be offering a grow room as a custom addition.
