1. No more than 6 plants may be grown for each patient registry identification card holder residing in a dwelling unit, not to exceed 12 plants per dwelling unit.
2. Growing and/or storage of medical marijuana shall occur within a completely enclosed structure.
3. Growing and/or storage of medical marijuana shall not occur in a common area associated with the dwelling unit.
4. Growing shall be for personal use only by patient registry identification card holders residing in the dwelling unit; retail or wholesale sales of goods or products derived from the growing of medical marijuana and any off-site distribution of such plants or derived products are prohibited.
