In order to make the deadline to regulate medical marijuana in its own capacity, the San Clemente Planning Commission approved a resolution for the City Council to approve a zoning amendment that would ban the cultivation and sales of medical marijuana within the city of San Clemente.
The resolution was approved 6-1 at the Dec. 16 Planning Commission meeting.
The new zone would encompass all San Clemente areas and prohibit cultivation, sales and other medical marijuana uses.
The city has until March 21 to adopt its own ordinance to regulate medical marijuana retailers. After that, the state’s laws will be the regulatory code for the city. The zoning ban on medical marijuana facilities is on the Tuesday, Jan. 5, City Council meeting agenda.
