Should Tamarac allow Medical Marijuana Dispensaries?
Florida voters approved Amendment 2 to the Florida Constitution, allowing the use of medical marijuana (including euphoric cannabis) for treatment of certain medical conditions. Following that approval, the State Legislature issued a host or regulations which enabled cities and counties to choose one of the following options:
- Ban medical marijuana dispensing facilities within municipal limits
- Allow such facilities under conditions that are the same or less restrictive than those applied to pharmacies.
Medical marijuana dispensaries are retail establishments authorized to sell cannabis in an approved form for medicinal use. Tamarac opted to ban medical marijuana dispensaries, while reserving the right to evaluate the policy in the future.
While no proposals to repeal this ban have been drafted or presented to the City Commission, we’d like to hear how Tamarac residents feel about such facilities.
