Cell Tower Update 9.21.11
     
 


From the News-Ledger
Jan. 26, 2011

  The West Sacramento City Council last week voted 4-0 last week to ban medical marijuana dispensaries in the city, even though the dispensaries were made legal by state voters. A number of potential marijuana vendors had expressed an interest in opening up “pot” dispensaries in the city.

  City staff had originally proposed restrictions such as limiting the total number of dispensaries in town to two, restricting them to certain areas of the business district, and requiring them to serve only local clients who had evidence of medical need. But court cases elsewhere convinced them they could not control the dispensaries as tightly as they had hoped, and staff then recommended that dispensaries be prohibited.

  Mayor Cristopher Cabaldon was absent from last week’s vote. Council members Mark Johannessen, Chris Ledesma, Bill Kristoff and Oscar Villegas voted for the ban.
