Someone who has gone through the legal process to get their medical marijuana card shouldn't be penalized just because they are under county supervision, Folmer said.

Folmer said he is hoping to talk to Tylwalk about the policy.

There was inevitably going to be some bugs in the process to legalize medical marijuana, Folmer said.

"We knew there were some things we had to fine-tune on this, and this is one of the things we're gonna have to," he said.
