Pinal County Board of Supervisors paving the way for a Casa Grande dairy to grow marijuana

The room was filled with residents opposing the change, the county planning & zoning commission voted 9-1 to deny the request and the Pinal County Attorney's Office, as well as many other organizations across the county were also opposed.

The Board of Supervisors however, in a 3-2 vote, approved the text amendment, allowing the outdoor cultivation of medical marijuana with a special use permit. The original proposal would have allowed outdoor growing of marijuana on 10 acres with a review every two years however the Board approved the growth on five acres with an annual review.

As with all zoning amendments, this zoning change has countywide implications and is not specific for the Dugan family.

Jordan Rose, of the Rose Law Group, who represented Dugan, said "It's not about medical marijuana. It's about private property rights."

Chairperson Chase & Vice Chairman Rios voted against the amendment. Supervisors Smith, Miller and House voted in favor.

Currently state statute allows an indoor facility to cultivate up to 2,000 sq ft for medical marijuana. The text amendment now allows for outdoor farming on a five-acre farm, more than 100 times the state statute maximum.
