The Denver Post reports today that Denver City Council has approved an initial ordinance that would set the plant limit for caregivers at 12 plants. As current regulations state a caregiver may serve five patients, with six plants each, this would severely curtail medicinal efforts.
Councilwoman Jeanne Robb said home marijuana gardens bring risks of mold and fire, and she said the city has already been accommodating to medical-marijuana dispensaries and to growing operations in industrial areas.
"It seemed that we didn't need to overburden our neighborhoods with medical-marijuana growing as well," she said.
Council will revisit the issue Sept. 20, when they'll invite public comment.
