SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) - San Luis Obispo is giving the stink eye to bad smells.

The San Luis Obispo Tribune (https://bit.ly/1BOhwXA ) says the City Council gave final approval this week to a law regulating offensive and persistent odors. It followed complaints from residents about the smell of medical marijuana being cultivated in a neighbor’s backyard.

The ordinance provides rules about enforcement actions, such as issuing citations and violation notices. The rules take effect in 30 days.

Opponents said odor complaints are trivial and the city shouldn’t be spending time and tax dollars to track them down.

Dan Carpenter, one of two councilmembers who opposed the measure, said he believes it’s unenforceable.



But Councilwoman Carlyn Christianson says the law will be a useful tool when marijuana eventually is legalized and odor complaints increase.
