After the controversy over the restrictions of marijuana dispensaries, the City Council of Sacramento, California, settled the dispute and voted unanimously for the prohibition of marihuana dispensaries within 500 feet distance from parks, schools, churches and other public places.
This case has been the hot topic in the city of Sacramento since June when the city official decided to question the use of medical marihuana dispensaries. On the 20th of July, the city officials held a meeting and deliberated over the fact that, according to the state laws of the year 2000, the constitution allowed patients who depend on medical dispensaries to grow the needed marijuana within their private premises. The constitution gave the state the rights to examine the dispensaries and grant the approved growers a permission certificate.
Although there are around 39 medical marihuana dispensaries around the U.S., only 2 or 3 of them would be granted the permission certificate by the City Council.
Executives from the Green Natural Solutions, a medical marijuana dispensary in Delta’s Main Street attended the meeting, during which the dispensary was put on suspension until further examination.
These dispensaries, as well as the other dispensaries that the council would approve, are to be granted permissions by the 1st of September, after paying fees ranging from $7,000 to $27,000.
