Proposed Gold Hill Ordinances Would Allow Pot Dispensaries
The Gold Hill City Council has granted initial approval to a pair of ordinances that would allow medical marijuana dispensaries.
Council members approved the first readings of both a business license ordinance to allow medical marijuana dispensaries and a second ordinance that would amend the cityís land use code to view dispensaries as retail use in downtown.
Final approval could come on June 2nd with the ordinances becoming effective in 30 days.
Public comment centered around opposition to dispensaries in general with supporters speaking on the importance of access to medical cannabis while opponents demanded the issue be put to a citizenís vote.
