Jefferson City Planning and Zoning to Address Medical Marijuana Facilities
Jefferson City is looking at regulations for medical marijuana dispensaries.
The planning and zoning commission will address the regulations during a meeting tonight (Thursday).
In Jefferson City the facilities will be regulated similarly to factories with the manufacturing facilities to be located more than one thousand feet of then-existing elementary and secondary, schools, child care centers or churches.
In November, Missouri passed Amendment 2 to legalize medical marijuana in the state.
Also, the law requires cities to develop zoning regulations for the facilities that, manufacture, test and dispense medical marijuana products.
