City commissioners voting against medical marijuana ordinances cite conflicting laws, moral quandaries

City commissioners voting against medical marijuana ordinances cite conflicting laws, moral quandaries

Carl Olsen, founder and director of the advocacy group Iowans for Medical Marijuana, said the law is still too restrictive compared with those of other states. Applications will be accepted through April 19, and soon after the state will pick two manufacturers. Regarding medical cannabis, they state on their website that "smoking the raw form of marijuana is akin to smoking opium to get the effects of morphine" and that "marijuana meets the technical definition of [a] Schedule I [drug] because it has a high potential for abuse and has no FDA-approved use".

A state lawmaker has submitted legislation that would allow medical marijuana for pets in NY. May 17 is the anticipated date to select medical marijuana facilities, and the application period for dispensaries should open after that.

Both companies say they are working closely with the Department of Health and state officials to ensure continuity of operations and support for patients.

There is another application for a medical marijuana dispensary in Southington, submitted recently by About Wellness LLC, which is seeking a special permit for a site at 30 Knotter Drive owned by Napoli Associates, LLC. "There's no additional approval needed should they be awarded that license".

Martin assured Council that the cannabis that comes into Hanford will go into one building, it will be processed inside that building, and when it leaves that building it will go somewhere out of the city of Hanford.

Kremlin denies claim Sergei Skripal asked Putin for pardon
Moscow has repeatedly denied responsibility for the March 4 attack on 66-year-old Mr Skripal and his daughter, Yulia , 33. An old school friend of the poisoned former Russian spy claims he "called [Putin] in 2012 and denied he was a traitor".

But the process was halted after Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen placed a preliminary injunction against the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission, preventing it from awarding the five licenses.

Griffith, as he has maintained through almost 10 public hearings on the matter, said he would vote against the ordinances because he "swore an oath to uphold both state and federal law".

"Dispensary use is permitted in our commercial zoning districts", he said.

McNary disagreed with Lowry's assessment that voting against the ordinances would mean a commissioner is allowing "the illegal market to flourish", and said that "this sort of wide range use of marijuana takes (money out of the hands of) the small provider", and would force "a hustler" to move from selling marijuana to selling "cocaine and meth".

Other cities, such as Williston, lay out more detailed guidelines. A lot of them are employed in the industry, in both the recreational and medical fields, and might have financial interests in the biz as business owners, investors, or employees.

Under the bill, authorized veterinarians would be allowed to "certify" pets for medical marijuana treatment.

Sorensen said she was fine with amending the ordinance because it doesn't change the city's processes at all. Opponents of legalized marijuana use have raised questions about the social cost and subversion of federal laws.

Mayor David Ayers said he wasn't comfortable amending the ordinance based on a change that happened just a short time ago.

The sale of medical marijuana began in late 2016, with Clinton County receiving 22.5 percent of the 7 percent tax assessed on purchases.
