Marijuana Dispensary Task Force To Be Empaneled

The Emeryville city council voted last Tuesday to study the pros and cons of allowing a medical marijuana dispensary in town.  The vote will establish a medical marijuana task force to be comprised of appointed Emeryville citizens and business leaders.  The job of the task force will be to determine if much needed revenue for the city offsets possible problems brought on by a dispensary.
If the task force recommends approving a dispensary for Emeryville, the council would have to rescind an existing ordinance specifically forbidding medical marijuana dispensaries before it could vote to move forward if it were so inclined.  The council heard a presentation made last January to consider setting up the task force.
