Council Passes Extension of Medical Marijuana Dispensary Moratorium Unanimously

The moratorium on issuing permits for medical marijuana dispensaries will extend through Oct. 27, 2011.

City council members voted unanimously Wednesday night to extend the city's moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries for another year.  The moratorium has been in place since last October and now extends through Oct. 27, 2011.

The city elected to extend the moratorium rather than rewrite zoning laws to include dispensaries. This was in part prompted by upcoming state ballot Proposition 19, which will come before voters in November and, if passed, will legalize marijuana statewide. Council members decided to wait for the outcome of that vote before making zoning decisions.

Though the moratorium extends through October 2011, the council can choose to terminate it early through a council vote.
