Ventura City Council To Consider Ordinance To Ban Marijuana Dispensaries

Posted on Monday, November 18, 2013 12:14am


The Ventura City Council tonight is scheduled to consider an ordinance to ban medical marijuana dispensaries in the city, as well as large scale medical marijuana plots in the city.

The City Council looked at the issue in July, and after a long public hearing, voted 7 to 1 to direct the City Attorney’s office to develop language for an ordinance.

The ordinance includes wording which would also ban mobile dispensaries.

In some jurisdictions, dispensary operators have been trying to skirt ordinances by operating what they called mobile dispensaries.  A mobile dispensary ban has been enacted by some other jurisdictions, but is currently being challenged in court.
