This is from the County of Nevada Facebook page:
Today, our County of Nevada Board of Supervisors approved the County’s Commercial Cannabis Cultivation Ordinance.
This comes after a multi-year community process starting in 2016 when 59% of Nevada County voters rejected Measure W, which proposed an ordinance banning outdoor cannabis cultivation. The cultivation ordinance allows cannabis farmers to cultivate up to 10,000 square feet with minimum parcel sizes of medicinal cannabis in specified zones including agricultural and forest zones, but not residential zones, in Nevada County. The ordinance does not allow manufacturing, dispensaries or other “supply chain” cannabis businesses.

One reaction on Facebook:
“What has happened in our county is a grassroots movement of traditionally non-political community engaging with government and community to change law and to flip a red county to blue. If you are progressive, you should study the cannabis movement in Nevada County, because we are a rocking new force to behold.”
