7.32.010 - Purpose and intent.
It is the purpose and intent of this chapter to require that medical marijuana be cultivated in appropriately secured, enclosed, and ventilated structures, so as not to be visible to the public domain, to provide for the health, safety and welfare of the public, to prevent odor created by marijuana plants from impacting adjacent properties, and ensure that marijuana grown for medical purposes remains secure and does not find its way to non-patients or illicit markets. 17.08.030 - Interim prohibition of establishment or operation of marijuana dispensaries.
Pursuant to Government Code section 65858, and notwithstanding any other provision of this code, the establishment, development, construction, maintenance, or operation of a marijuana dispensary is hereby prohibited, and is not a permitted use in any zoning district, even if located within an otherwise permitted use. No person shall establish, develop, construct, maintain, or operate a marijuana dispensary, and no application for a building permit, use permit, variance, or any other entitlement authorizing the establishment, development, construction, maintenance, or operation of any marijuana dispensary shall be approved by the city of Tehama or any officer or employee thereof.
