Cotati Considers Benefits of Medical Marijuana Dispensaries
January 07, 2007
COTATI, Calif. (AP) - Cotati could soon become home to a medical marijuana dispensary.
The City Council is considering a new policy to replace its current ban on pot clubs that would allow a single, privately run facility in one of its commercial corridors.
"Folks that are using medical marijuana are very sick," Councilman John Guardino said. "To have a dispensary in town would certainly benefit patients."
The effort comes 10 years after California voters approved Proposition 215, which allowed the use of marijuana for medical purposes.
A nearby pot club in Santa Rosa was forced to close after complaints from neighbors about traffic and disturbances.
