Sonoma County plans to charge medical marijuana patients 80 dollars a year for I-D cards designed to protect them from arrest by state and local authorities.The fee is expected to be approved by the Board of Supervisors. It would cover annual administrative costs to supply cards to the county's medical pot users.

 

The county plans to start accepting applications for the I-D cards in November.

 

The cards were mandated by the state Legislature two years ago to clarify the voter-approved initiative that allowed marijuana for medical purposes.
