GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- Today Josephine County enacted new regulations for local marijuana growers.
The fences used to protect the farms are now under more strict regulations. Growers will receive a letter between the week of October 29 and the week of November 5. They will then have 30 days to comply with the new regulations.

Josephine County Commissioner, Dan Deyong, spoke to NewsWatch 12 about the new regulations and said the overall goal is to make sure that everyone knows what the rules are.

Today Josephine County enacted new regulations for local marijuana growers. Take a look at what has changed for cannabis production.

Current fences made of tarps, pallets, and cardboard have been a part of legislative discussion for a few months now after complaints that the fences were ugly and disrupted the Oregon scenery.

According to Deyong, the new regulations are as follows:

  1. No more tarp or junk fences will be allowed.
  2. Shade cloth used to cover the plants are limited to three months and then they need to be removed.
  3. In residential zones, the total size of all buildings in the lot cannot exceed 50% of the lot.
  4. No indoor lighting from the cannabis operation should be visible from dwellings on adjoining properties.
  5. No light, regardless of zone or use, shall cast light onto adjacent properties or upward into the sky.
