Board expands social host ordinance to include marijuana
Last updated 5/10/2019 at 7:28pm
The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday, April 30, to amend its social host ordinance to add marijuana, so that as with alcoholic beverages, adults providing these substances to minors could be cited or arrested.
The social host ordinance puts civil and criminal liability on adults controlling private residences or properties who either do not properly supervise minors or allow minors to consume these substances.
The amendment is a result of marijuana being more readily available after the passage of Proposition 64, which made its use legal for adults over 21.
