Kingman City Council members are embracing a future with medical marijuana.
The Daily Miner reports the Kingman City Council Thursday passed marijuana land-use regulations that say dispensaries can set up shop in either industrial or commercial zones.
The facilities must be 2,500-feet from schools, parks and churches and not in residential areas. Councilwoman Erin Cochran argued that what’s best for the city is to put a dispensary as close to Kingman’s police station as possible and allow its caretakers to grow medical marijuana there.
Councilwoman Janet Watson says the pot dispensaries will be well regulated and the city owes it to residents to make dispensaries visible and accessible.
