Sacramento County and City Medical Marijuana Law

You might call Sacramento conservative, but City Hall is liberal when it comes to Medical Marijuana. In 2016, it has never been easier to access good MMJ. In 2016 there were about 30 legal dispensaries in operation within city limits.

The city allows indoor personal cultivation, up to 400 square feet, in patient’s homes. The city also took steps to encourage indoor cultivation so long as the zoning was agricultural and was not near a public school.

“We recognize that City Council allows dispensaries and the council and recommends that staff come up with a proposal that allowing for the cultivation of medical marijuana. We want to provide legal plants for our dispensaries and make sure everything is in compliance with state law.” – Joy Patterson, City Planner

  • On November 20, 2012, the City of Sacramento adopted a compromise personal use medical cannabis cultivation ordinance. It bans outdoor cultivation but alternative structures are acceptable if compliant.
  • June 17, 2014, the Sacramento Board of Supervisors adopted an ordinance allowing nine indoor plants per parcel.
  • April 22, 2014, the Board voted unanimously to ban outdoor medical marijuana cultivation in unincorporated areas of the county, but chose not to ban indoor cultivation and rather work with advocates to develop an indoor ordinance.
  • The outdoor cultivation ordinance that passed carries penalties of incarceration and fines, plus administrative fees. (See Title 16.18 of Sac County Code).

Any patient who is impacted by local ordinances can write to Sacramento NORML. You have the option to Apply for a Variance to the Zoning Code, at growing time or at the time of a complaint.

Why should I renew my Proposition 215 doctors recommendation?

Patients who have a medical condition and wish to use medical marijuana will need a county issued ID card. The MMIC identifies the cardholder as a person protected under the provisions of Prop 215 and SB 420. It is used to help law enforcement identify the cardholder as being able to legally possess certain amounts of medical marijuana under specific conditions. To apply for the county ID card (MMIC) you will either need to approach your primary care doctor for a recommendation or visit our office and be seen by our doctors on staff. Unlike your primary care, our doctors are well versed in the use of marijuana and can give you specific advise on use peratining to your ailments. We can help guide you through the MMIC process and assist with any paperwork that is required to apply. Under Proposition 64, patients who present a valid MMIC card do not have to pay the sales and use tax when making retail purchases of medical cannabis, medical cannabis concentrate, edible medical cannabis products or topical cannabis.

If your medical condition requires more than the legal limit of six mature or twelve immature plants, you will need a doctor’s recommendation to possess an additional amount of cannabis consistent with your medical needs (Health and Safety Code 11362.77 (b)).

You must be 21 years old to use recreationally. If you have a medical condition, and you are 18 to 20 years old, you will still need a medical marijuana recommendation in order to legally grow or purchase your medical marijuana.

Not all dispensaries have their license to sell recreational use cannabis. With a medical recommendation for your condition, you will have access to all dispensaries, delivery services, and medical only events throughout the state of California.

Your parental rights. (Health and Safety Code 11362.84) With the passage of Prop 64, California courts can no longer rescind or restrict a parent’s custodial rights based solely upon the fact that the parent has a medical recommendation for the use of medical marijuana. Instead, the court must look to additional evidence relating to the child’s safety and best interests. Note, the possession of a recommendation for medical marijuana use does not mean your parental rights are completely protected. Talk to your family law attorney for the legal impart of Prop 64 on your custodial rights.
