Columbia meets on medical marijuana

Columbia’s Planning and Zoning Commission will discuss medical marijuana regulations at a work session Thursday night.

The commission will discuss how to integrate medical marijuana effectively into the community, focused on the land-use perspective.

The goal of the meeting is to begin preparing regulations and standards of use for medical marijuana after Amdendment 2 passed in November.

A public hearing will be required on any decided proposed revisions.

There will also be one or more “public listening” sessions. These sessions are to ensure that there is adequate public dialogue and vetting.

There are also specific dates by which the state must complete particular tasks associated with medical marijuana.

June 4, 2019 – Application forms and instructions will be made available July 4, 2019 – Applications for identification cards will begin to be accepted Aug. 3, 2019 – Facility applications will begin to be accepted

Staff will work with the commission to ensure that proposed recommendations are completed before the end of June or mid-July.

The meeting will start at City Hall at 5:30 p.m.
