A Tulare County judge ruled Foothill Growers Association could not operate on agriculturally-owned land. Foothill Growers tried to argue that medical marijuana was Ag crop but the judge denied the claim.
The Tulare County ordinance requires collectives to operate on industrial or commercially-zoned property and grow plants outside. The collective was violating both rules.
Foothill Growers says it plans to appeal the judge's decision and will be moving to a location on commercially-zoned land.
