The Madera County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday passed an ordinance regulating medical marijuana plant grows.
According to the new law, medical marijuana patients can grow the plants in a room inside a single-family home, or in an enclosed space measuring up to 100 square feet on the property.
Plants can not be taller than six feet, and they can not be grown in commercial or industrial areas or within 2,000 feet of a school, church or other public building.
The ordinance also states that the primary caregiver must live with the patient.
Those caught breaking the law could face up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
