Lawyer Fights Shasta County Marijuana Zoning Law
SHASTA LAKE, California – Several hundred medical marijuana plants were seized by law enforcement in June, but no citations have been issued. Now a Redding lawyer is seeking compensation for plants seized by the county.
More than 500 marijuana plants were seized by the Shasta County Sheriff’s Department on June 3 from the non-profit collective Medicine for our Military in Shasta Lake, according to the Redding law offices of Berg and Associates.
Sheriff’s officers, along with Shasta County Code Enforcement, seized the plants because they violated a county ordinance restriction that outlaws all outdoor marijuana cultivation in Shasta County. Medicine for our Military assists Shasta County veterans with other resources besides medical marijuana, according to Donald “Blue” Mobley, who said that law enforcement seized all of his plants and didn’t issue any citations.
