RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) – New markets, want laws — which is why the Speedy Metropolis Widespread Council is about to debate medical marijuana as soon as once more at tonight’s assembly.
On the agenda, is a vote on the foundations for medical hashish institutions. Thus far Speedy Metropolis officers drafted an ordinance permitting 15 dispensaries inside metropolis limits, in addition to a $5,000 greenback annual licensing charge. Councilman for Ward 4, Lance Lehmann says it’s essential for the Metropolis to cross tips earlier than the state passes their very own.
“We’re offering an additional algorithm to be adopted and if the state implements theirs, then anyone may get licensed to function and never need to observe our guidelines, so we’re ready, we try to beat the state to getting their guidelines applied,” Lehmann stated.
Lehmann provides, he expects these guidelines to cross with no downside. As for native companies excited by getting in on the motion, Proprietor of Hemporium Boutique, Leonard Vandermate says he’s making some adjustments to be one of many 15 licensed dispensaries.
”Due to the maps, and the course that town council is popping out with, we going to have to maneuver our location, we have already got that, we’ve already been planning for it, we’ve have already got it within the works, our aim is to construct a brand new location close to by that might be state-of-the-art,” Vandermate stated.
The state’s guidelines are anticipated to be printed someday on the finish of October.
