City Council revisits medical marijuana regulations

Tribune staff report

The South Lake Tahoe City Council will again discuss how it should regulate medical marijuana dispensaries in the city.

On Tuesday, the council is scheduled to discuss and possibly give direction to staff regarding the rules surrounding the operation of dispensaries in South Lake Tahoe.

Mayor Claire Fortier suggested the council revisit the regulations after the council declined to ratify a proposal earlier this month to allow one of three medical marijuana dispensaries in South Lake Tahoe – City of Angels 2 Collective – to move. The dispensary could be forced to close following the decision.

The City Council passed its existing regulations regarding dispensaries in August 2011 after approximately two years of discussion.

The council meets starting at 9 a.m. Tuesday at Lake Tahoe Airport, located at 1901 Airport Road.

The dispensary item is scheduled for 2 p.m.
