.++ NEWS CHENEY FREE PRESS Thursday' August 20, 2015 I 9 Accident caused by heart attack continued from page 1 signed SB 5252, one being a new stan- dards that patients 18-20 years old can acquire a cannabis prescription. Braaten said there was concerns with the bill allowing patients under 18 years old to use it at school. He said there was a misconception that patients would be smoking it on school grounds. "A patient would actually have it administered to them by a school nurse, like a prescription drug," Braaten said. Under the new bill, growers can sign onto a voluntary medical marijuana au- thorization database that allows them to grow up to 15 plants per housing unit. If they are part of a collective garden with other growers, they can produce up to 15 plants per person and 45 total. Growers who are not registered can grow up to four plants. Registering with the database also provides growers with arrest protection. "With the medical marijuana data- base, it eliminates local medical licens- es," Braaten said. "The state regulates that, and collective gardens that have local permits will not be permitted or renewed after July 1, 2016." Commissioner Matthew Pederson asked what power the city would have to implement rules. Braaten said the city would continue to maintain local jurisdic- tion and can approve or deny an applica- tion with proper justification. He added that the city has not received any applica- tions for medical cannabis facilities. Under SB 5252, cooperative gardens have to be located within the living space of one of the registered patients. Plants cannot be sold to anyone outside of the cooperative or non-registered patients. "If a registered patient is caught do- ing that, it's a criminal charge, just like if it was drug dealing," Braaten said. One of the city's amendments is the living space must be a minimttm of 6,000 square feet. The commission asked about provisions for landlords to give consent to tenants before they can use the space to grow medical cannabis. Braaten said he could add language that requests further approval from the property OWller. "They can grow as long as the landowner knows it," Braaten said. "If the owner doesn't know it or hasn't approved it, it's an illega! operation," Braaten said.
