Marijuana delivery services to remain in Paso Robles
August 6, 2014
The Paso Robles City Council has opted to let medical marijuana dispensaries to continue operating within the city.
Last month, the council deadlocked 2-2 on a vote to ban marijuana delivery services. Councilman John Hamon was absent from the meeting.
On Tuesday night, the entire council took part in a hearing on mobile dispensaries, but it did not take a new vote on the proposed ban. The council instead opted to vote to receive and file a staff report on the issue.
In addition to proposing the ban, city staff also offered the council the option of issuing a business license to a mobile dispensary that applied for one earlier this summer. The council declined to do so.
The council previously banned brick and mortar marijuana dispensaries in the city, but the ordinance did not included mobile ones. The dispensaries that deliver to Paso Robles residents will continue to do so without being subject to city regulation.
