This morning, the Fresno County Board of Supervisors is conducting a public hearing on a medical marijuana identification card program.40 counties have started programs including Merced, Tulare, and Kern counties, but Fresno has yet to act.

The program is mandated by a state law and went into effect four years ago. The I.D. card allows local law enforcement officers to easily identify true medical marijuana patients during enforcement stops.
