Public Meetings Set for the Medical Marijuana Ordinance Sunset Date

The City of Tucson's Planning and Development Services Department (PDSD) is seeking feedback regarding medical marijuana (MMJ) regulations to help address the Jan. 31, 2019, expiration of the governing ordinance. The Mayor and Tucson Council must extend the date, remove it, or let the ordinance expire.

PDSD staff will hold two public meetings with presentations to help people understand the ordinance. The first meeting is scheduled for this Wednesday, Oct. 17, 5:30-6:30 p.m., in the Medium Meeting Room at the Murphy-Wilmot Library, 530 N. Wilmot Rd. The second meeting will be held on Friday, Oct. 19, noon-1 p.m., at the Pima County Public Works Building (Room A, in the basement), 201 N. Stone Ave.

PDSD staff will give a presentation to inform the public about the MMJ ordinance and facilitate a discussion for participants to share their opinions, observations, and suggestions regarding proposed changes and improvements. Staff will use the input received in refining the suggestions that will be brought to Mayor and Council.
