If you would like to report a marijuana cultivation site that you believe violates the marijuana land use ordinance, use the Online Code Violation form. You can access it here: Online complaint form or from the menu on the left of this page.
The form can also be accessed on the County website by clicking on this link: Medical Marijuana Ordinance and Complaint Form
Enforcement of the medical marijuana ordinance is complaint driven, so no Online Complaint Form? No investigation.
Once the complaint form has been submitted, a copy goes to the Code Enforcement Officer who will share the information with her Narcotics department prior to starting her investigation. If the violation persists for more than 30 days after you filed your complaint, file another complaint. This will notify code enforcement that the violator has not come into compliance.
