EUREKA- Local stakeholders are currently drafting an ordinance to regulate cannabis grown in Humboldt County.

Marijuana farmers, environmentalists, activists and two Board of Supervisors were among those at the meeting held at the Wharfinger building on Wednesday.

The forum was closed to the public and was held by the California Cannabis Voice, Humboldt.

The group is crafting a land use ordinance that will regulate the way the plant is farmed, including taxing growers. Once the draft is completed the ordinance will be brought to the public for comment, and ultimately the Board of Supervisors.
