Palm Springs

City considers medical marijuana sites

Staff Report • January 2, 2009

Palm Springs passed a moratorium on dispensaries in March 2006 but allowed it to expire earlier this year, paving the way for possibly allowing medical marijuana dispensaries in the city.

A proposed law would allow dispensaries as nonprofit collectives or cooperatives in areas zoned for industrial or professional use but would not protect the dispensaries or patients from prosecution under federal law.

The City Council will consider a decision at its Jan. 7 meeting.
