On Thursday this week, the San Joaquin County Community Development Department is holding a workshop to solicit comments from the public on a new medical cannabis dispensaries ordinance.
The workshop begins at 6:30 p.m in the public auditorium and will concentrate on cannabis dispensaries in unincorporated areas where rules are unconnected with those applying inside Stockton city limits. Three medical marijuana dispensaries are to be allowed to operate within Stockton.
It was April this where when the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors voted for an extension to the temporary ban on opening medical pot dispensaries by a year. The interim period was to be used for the drafting of permanent ordinance and Thursday’s meeting is part of this process.
Following on from the workshop a draft ordinance will be prepared by county staff, from where it will go before the public at a Planning Commission hearing.
The workshop begins at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Public Health Auditorium, 1601 E. Hazelton Ave. in Stockton
