A ban on marijuana cultivation in Fresno County takes effect this week under the protests of medical marijuana patients.

The California Report's Alice Daniel says the ban includes fines of $1000 per plant.

It's a first for any county in the state, and it's modeled after a similar ban in Live Oak, near Sacramento.
