San Diego adding marijuana, illegal drugs to social host ordinance

The legalization of marijuana and increased use of illegal drugs by young people is prompting San Diego to add those substances to a 15-year-old law that allows police to cite anyone hosting a party where underage drinking occurs.

The San Diego City Council’s public safety committee on Wednesday unanimously approved amending the city’s “social host” ordinance to include marijuana and illegal drugs in addition to alcohol.

If the full council approves the change later this winter, San Diego would join Escondido, San Marcos, Chula Vista and Santee as local cities that have expanded their social host laws.
