Board to vote on banning medical marijuana dispensaries
At Tuesday’s meeting, the Mariposa County Board of Supervisors will vote to adopted an interim urgency ordinance to prohibit the establishment of medical marijuana dispensaries within the borders of Mariposa County.
The supervisors will also make a decision on designating the Mariposa County Health Department as the local administering agency for issuing medical marijuana ID cards.
The urgency aspect of the dispensary ban is based on the decisions of surrounding counties, including Stanislaus, Merced, Madera, and Fresno. With no ordinance in place, supervisors are seeking to prevent a proliferation of the dispensaries in Mariposa County that would serve bordering county residents.
