We are CCG—Cannabis Citizens Group
We seek to promote reasonable guidelines for personal cultivation of cannabis consistent with California law, and prohibit commercial cannabis activity in Plumas County.
The purpose of the CCG ordinance is to provide a means for regulating the cultivation of cannabis in a manner that is consistent with state law and which balances the interests of persons choosing to cultivate and use cannabis while promoting the health, safety, and welfare of the residents and businesses within Plumas County.
We are committed to the:
- Health and wellbeing of our homes and communities.
- Public safety for all—growers and non-growers alike.
- Protection of our surrounding natural environment including wildlife and watersheds.
- Positive future for Plumas County with the normative culture of cannabis and cultivation.
Our objectives are to:
- Defeat the Measure B MAUCO commercial cannabis ballot initiative in November.
- Prohibit the cultivation of cannabis in connection with any commercial cannabis activity.
- Cap the number of cannabis plants on any premises to six, regardless of the number of persons residing at the premises.
- Prohibit the cultivation of cannabis on any lot without a permanent, permitted residence.
We are a diverse group of residents from all walks of life. We’re taking action because of grave concerns with the Measure B ballot initiative for the MAUCO pro-commercial cannabis proposed ordinance. While researching the ordinances of other California counties and their outcomes, we began meeting together to talk about our concerns, what we would like to see that wasn’t being addressed by the CWG, and what we were hearing from our neighbors.
Together, we drafted an ordinance similar to Tehama County’s cannabis cultivation ordinance and have asked the Planning Commission to review it. Before their February meetings, we ask all of you for your feedback on our draft. We’d like to know where you stand and what concerns you may have with it. Is it too strict? Does it go far enough?
We will revise our draft based on your input to ensure it meets the greater consensus of Plumas County residents, businesses, and government entities. We will then present our revised draft at the first Planning Commission meeting.
