The California Growers Association is Suing California

California is facing a lawsuit from the state’s largest cannabis farmers organization over its decision to exclude a cap on the size of marijuana farms from its latest emergency cannabis rules. The California Growers’ Association filed suit in Sacramento County Superior Court last week. It is seeking to impose limits of 1 acre or less on commercial growing operations until 2023.

As CalMarijuanaPolicy noted, this was by far the most controversial aspect of the rules that were released in November. The association’s Executive Director Hezekiah Allen went so far as to say it could jeopardize California’s entire marijuana industry.

Allen’s group also argues that the 1-acre cap is mandated by law. State regulators dispute that.
