El Centro California Legal Marijuana Ordinance To Be Amended

The city’s medical marijuana ordinance has been in limbo for much of its lifespan, but after Tuesday’s El Centro City Council decision, there may be time frames attached.rn

An ordinance allowing medical marijuana dispensaries in the city was approved in June. But in October the ordinance was placed “on hold” following a court of appeals decision that struck down a similar ordinance in the city of Long Beach. The ordinances are similar in that both allow and regulate dispensaries by requiring applicants to get a permit from the city. The issue is that medicinal use of marijuana is decriminalized under state law, city attorney Kris Becker said in a previous interview, but marijuana dispensaries are illegal under federal law.
