Members of the Pomona City Council adopted an urgency ordinance Monday night that sets a 45-day moratorium on the establishment of medical marijuana dispensaries.

The 45-day moratorium will give city personnel time to do research on such facilities, the report said.

Council members voted 6-to-1 in favor of the ordinance, but added a condition that an existing facility in the 200 block of San Lorenzo Street remain open while city staff members conduct their research.

Personnel in the city's planning division have had people asking questions regarding the establishment of such facilities, according to a city staff report.

At this time the city doesn't have regulations governing medical marijuana dispensaries. The current facility opened in December.

The moratorium would expire on May 18 and can be extended for 10 months and 15 days if needed, the report said.
