City Council finally approves medical marijuana ordinances

After months of voting to delay consideration of two city ordinances concerning medical marijuana, the City Council approved rules governing grow operation and dispensary zoning and the licensing of dispensaries. Wow. All in all, the rules look pretty reasonable: 20 licenses for dispensaries for the first year of the program and a review board to approve license applications. No dispensaries or cultivation operations within 1000 ft of schools or in property zoned residential. I wonder if this includes plants grown personally by medicinal marijuana patients. It seems like a patient growing their own plants in their basement wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.
