Sonora May Extend Medicinal Marijuana Moratorium
Sonora, CA – The Sonora City Council will decide Monday whether to extend a temporary moratorium on medicinal marijuana dispensaries.
On October 18th the Council put a 45 day moratorium on medicinal marijuana clinics after an applicant came to the city and proposed to open a dispensary on Mono Way. The Council wanted additional time to consider how to deal with zoning and other issues related to this type of clinic.
On Monday, the Council will decide whether to extend the moratorium 10 months and 15 days. According to Rachelle Kellogg, the City Grants/Redevelopment Program Manager, this would allow the city needed time to further study the issue and develop a proper ordinance.
Monday’s meeting begins at 5pm at Sonora City Hall.
