Chico City Council voted 4-3 to pass a city ordinance strictly regulating the use, sale and growing of marijuana Tuesday night.

Ordinance 19.75 prohibits commercial cannabis activity, sets up a permitting process for indoor personal grow only and prohibits use within designated areas of the city.

Councilwoman Ann Schwab voted against the ordinance and said, “64 percent of voters in Chico voted to legalize recreational use of marijuana and now we are criminalizing something…that is criminal.”

Councilmen Randall Stone and Karl Ory stood with Schwab.

Mark Sorenson, who voted for the ordinance, believes that the City should play it safe and see what happens saying that Chico can always revise. He cited the consequences jurisdictions face that legalized sales as a reason to enforce the ordinance. However, he did not specify any specific consequences.

The city ordinance becomes effective 30 days after the vote.

    Do not buy these permits for home grows. Compelling someone to confess to a crime is a violation of your 5th amendment rights. So long as the Federal government considers growing marijuana a crime the courts cannot sanction you for not wanted to admit to such in government documents. If you encounter charges related to an unpermitted grow immediately hire a lawyer or sue the city yourself and file a motion for injunctive relief due to a violation of your fifth amendment rights. We must fight back, do not participate!
