The San Diego County Board of Supervisors will decide Wednesday whether
to impose a 45-day moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries.
If approved by supervisors, the county will join the North County cities
of Escondido and Oceanside, which have taken similar steps in recent
County officials say the move is part of an effort to create a new
ordinance governing where and how medical marijuana establishments may
operate in the unincorporated areas.
Joe Farace, a county planning manager, said department officials
probably will ask the supervisors to extend the moratorium another 10
months, after the 45-day period, because the ordinance will take longer
Farace said the county will look at state guidelines, released by the
Attorney General's office last year, and ordinances developed by other
cities and counties.
