It doesn't look like it...
With a 4-0 vote, council members introduced amendments to the city code, tightening the prohibition of not just selling, but also cultivating and delivering medical pot.
The amendments will be brought back for a final vote later this month.
Last October, Gov. Jerry Brown signed the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act to regulate the sale and distribution of medicinal marijuana through a state department.
The law also afforded cities the right to adopt ordinances stating they’d prefer to manage such transactions on their own or not at all. Either way, every municipality has until March 1 to act.
In 2011, Glendale adopted its ban on medical-marijuana dispensaries, along with the ability to cultivate, deliver and distribute within the city’s borders.
