AZTEC — While the state legalized medical marijuana in 2007, the city of Aztec has never had an ordinance in place detailing where medical marijuana dispensaries can be located.
The Aztec City Commission took the first steps to change that Tuesday evening in a 4-0 vote.
Commissioner Sherri Sipe expressed some reservations based on how easy it is for people to get medical marijuana cards. Ultimately she voted in favor of publishing public notice informing residents of the city’s intent to adopt an ordinance.
The Tuesday evening vote does not establish an ordinance. The final vote on adopting an ordinance will come at a future commission meeting after residents have had time to comment on the proposed measure.
