Mayor Peter Arth of Dunsmuir, Calif., has propsoed planintg a large medical marijuana garden in the small city's historic business district. Arth, himself a medicinal user, this week asked the city council for a permit that would allow him to lease three commercial lots he owns to a cannabis collective to build greenhouses. Arth says the prime location would help "bring medical cannabis out of the darkness of an underground market and into the legal light."

Council member Mario Rubino said the project raises security concerns, even though it would be located across the street from a Siskiyou County sheriff's station. Rubino says the greenhouses would be "like putting $50,000 in an empty lot with a wooden fence around it." The council is scheduled to hear public comments on the plan this week. (AP, April 14)
