In February 2012, Mendocino County supervisors passed Ordinance 4291, which tightened the county’s earlier standards for residents growing medical cannabis. Those regulations included a fee-based, zip-tie ID program that linked specific plants to their qualified patients or caregivers.
Prior to the federal crackdown, which began in October 2011, Mendocino County cannabis Ordinance 4235 permitted the cultivation of up to 99 plants for qualified patient-growers who purchased identification zip-ties for each plant from the Sheriff’s Office and abided with other provisions, including rules for indoor cultivation.
