OH: Beavercreek Council To Consider Temporary Medical Marijuana Ban

Beavercreek - Tonight, the city council will vote on legislation that would place a six month ban on medical marijuana in Beavercreek.

If city council approves the resolution, permits for cultivators, processors and medical marijuana dispensaries will not be issued or processed for six months.

The moratorium is being considered to give the council and staff time to research and decide whether to limit or ban medical marijuana growth, processing or retail sale of the drug.

The city could also use the time to implement alternative regulations related to the medical marijuana locations and operations in the city.

The proposed resolution comes more than a month after Gov. John Kasich signed a bill, on June 8, making cannabis legal for medical use.

The bill will go into effect in September making Ohio the 25th state to legalize medical marijuana.

Beavercreek is the most recent example of local governments who are considering banning the drug. Last week, Liberty Twp. trustees met with State Sen. Bill Coley, R-West Chester Twp. to discuss placing a moratorium on medical marijuana businesses while state agencies work on rules for the new law.
