MENTONE – A marijuana collective is still operating here despite a county moratorium, but county officials had little to say Monday about enforcement plans.

Mentone Patients Association, which provides medical marijuana to about 30 patients per day, opened in late summer. The collective’s members grow marijuana for one another.

San Bernardino County has a moratorium on marijuana dispensaries and collectives in its unincorporated regions – like Mentone.

However, Wert said Monday that he did not know if county code enforcement had visited the site.
