Medicinal marijuana dispensaries will no longer be allowed in Ridgecrest, after a City Council vote banned such businesses in the community.

At its meeting Wednesday night, the council voted 5-0 to pass a proposed ordinance that would ban such business from operation in Ridgecrest.

The ordinance, which received its second reading at the meeting, states that "no medical marijuana dispensary shall be established or located or operated with the City of Ridgecrest."

The bill also states that anyone operating such a facility, even as a mobile vendor, is violating the ordinance. Violation of the new law is a misdemeanor.

The ordinance does not include residential care facilities, hospices, primary caregivers, or those persons possessing a legal marijuana use card.

While the public discussion on the marijuana issue has been lengthy and at times heated, no one from the public commented at the second reading of the proposed ordinance.
