A moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries has been adopted by the Redding Zoning Commission. A public hearing on the temporary, one-year, moratoruim was held Wednesday night. Members want to study language of current zoning laws. The amendment would also define medical marijuana dispensaries in order to create restrictions and standards.
The Zoning Enforcement Officer drafted the proposed moratorium amendment to include growing facilities as well.
Last month, D&B Wellness submitted an application to Redding officials for a dispensary in the Georgetown section of town, but due to scheduling reasons, the application didn't make it on to their agenda. D&B Wellness eventually turned to Bethel and are opening a dispensary on Garella Road.
