Pot grower granted restraining order against Tulare County

FRESNO, Calif.

A judge granted /*Richard Daleman*/ a temporary restraining order against Tulare County. It prevents county officials from seizing medical marijuana plants on his property.

Daleman is allowed under state law to have the plants on his five-acre property -- but the county ordinance does not allow it. He rents out his land to roughly forty medical marijuana card holders. More than four-thousand plants grow on the property.

The judge ruled the county's eradication of the plants would negatively affect Daleman's business.

Another hearing is scheduled for next month.
