Next week, city councilmembers Grant House, Helene Schneider, and Mayor Marty Blum will ask their colleagues whether the council should try to regulate the conduct of medical marijuana clinics within Santa Barbara city limits.
Given the recent outcry over dispensaries operating too close too apartments and kids’ dance studios — and smoking taking place on premises — it’s highly likely the entire council will agree.
Currently, there are ten marijuana dispensaries in Santa Barbara, with another on the way.
