Marina wants to investigate medical pot

May 01, 2006

, Monterey Herald

Interest in opening a medical marijuana clinic in Marina triggered a request by city administrators for an urgency measure to give them time to investigate the issue.

The Marina City Council today will consider approving a 45-day moratorium on permits for medicinal marijuana dispensers. City planners recently received inquiries about opening such an outlet, a report to the council says.

The proposed moratorium would allow city officials time to further investigate the pros and cons, the report says. The city has no current laws regarding medical uses of marijuana.

The council meets at 6:30 p.m. today at the Civic Center at 211 Hillcrest Ave.
