Two weeks ago, the city’s Planning Commission unanimously for the next two years. This would provide enough time for city staff to determine whether there are appropriate locations for these cannibis before making a permanent decision.
Tonight, the council will make its final decision at its 7 p.m. meeting.
The Planning Commission emphasized that the decision was a land use issue, not a debate about the usefulness of the drug as a medicine.
The council not only has to consider the uncertain fate of these dispensaries at the state level, but at the federal level, as U.S. attorneys are warning landlords that they may seize properties of anyone leasing space to cannibis dispensaries, the Sacramento Bee reported.
The most in San Mateo County from Rob Bueno near Redwood City boundaries will not be affected by the council’s decision.
