Fullerton council defers vote on marijuana shop law

The Cannabis reports..

Fullerton’s City Council has tabled, for now, a proposed law that would allow regulated marijuana dispensaries, manufacturers and other business types in some of the city’s commercial and industrial areas.

During a meeting Tuesday, Oct. 20, the council voted 4-1 to delay a decision on the ordinance. Some council members argued more study and community outreach must be done to avoid the negative impact of shops, while others contend the move simply kicks an inevitable issue down the road.

California voters in 2016 passed Prop. 64, which legalized cannabis for recreational use by adults 21 and older. State law lets local leaders decide whether to allow – and tax – sectors of the industry, such as recreational or medical shops, cultivation and distribution, within cities or counties.
