Mobile medical marijuana dispensaries can operate in Paso Robles after city leaders agreed not to take further action on the issue Tuesday night.
The Paso Robles City Council met Tuesday in a follow-up discussion to its July 15 session, where it deadlocked 2-2 on a vote to ban medical marijuana delivery services within the city. Without a majority vote, the ban failed to pass. Councilman John Hamon was absent from that first meeting.
On Tuesday, with all five councilmen in attendance and a room largely filled with an emotional crowd in support of allowing mobile delivery services, the council took a mostly procedural step.
The council voted 3-2 to receive and file a staff report that answered a question the council raised in the earlier meeting: whether any state or other regulations exist pertaining to operating a medical marijuana dispensary. The staff report said there are none.
