The Pima County Board of Supervisors approved a zoning amendment on Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2018 to allow designated medical marijuana caregivers to cultivate medical marijuana in certain zones.
The change allows designated caregivers to cultivate medical marijuana in GR -1 (Rural Residential) and RH (Rural Homestead) zones without a Conditional Use Permit. Cultivation sites will be subject to a set of rules, however, including being located inside a permanent building with cultivation area limited to 250 square feet.
Cultivation sites must meet all setback requirements, including setbacks from other cultivation locations, schools, churches, libraries, bus stops and child care centers.
