City to discuss sale of medical marijuana

Kevin Drescher

STANDISH — The city of Standish will address the controversial issue of legal medical marijuana sales permits within the city limits at their next city council meeting Thursday, June 17.

The council will meet to discuss Standish city ordinance No. 246, which, if passed, would put a six month moratorium on the issuance of permits for the sale or dispensation of medical marijuana within the city limits.

“All we’re going do is put in for an ordinance that would declare a moratorium that would halt medical marijuana dispensing for six months, so we can study it,” said Standish City Manager Mike Moran. “We want to study the pros and cons.”
