Pot Ban, New Jail: Two Votes Before County. Supervisors

Fresno County Board of Supervisors are voting on two major issues today: whether to ban medical marijuana grows and move forward with a new jail.
Fresno County Board of Supervisors are voting on two major issues today. The first, whether to move forward with a new 300-bed jail facility and the second whether to finalize a zero-tolerance policy on medical marijuana.

The ban would include both indoor and outdoor marijuana gardens. The county also has a ban on medical marijuana dispensaries, which means those who use medical marijuana would have to go out of the county to buy it legally.

Tuesday morning on Sunrise, Supervisor Henry Perea broke down the board's position on both issues.
