Medical Marijuana Ordinance Sunset Date


YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND A PUBLIC MEETING ON THE SUNSET DATE OF THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA ORDINANCE. Currently, the City of Tucson Planning and Development Services Department (PDSD) are seeking feedback regarding Medical Marijuana regulations to help address approaching expiration of the governing ordinance on January, 31 2019. On or before this date, the Mayor and Council must extend the date, remove the date, or let the ordinance expire. This is why your feedback is so important!

At this Public Meeting, PDSD staff will give a presentation to help everyone understand the Medical Marijuana ordinance, and will facilitate a discussion for participants to share their opinions, observations and suggestions regarding proposed changes and improvements. This feedback will be essential to staff’s assessment of the provisions of the ordinance and necessary improvements, as staff will use the input received in refining the suggestions that will be brought to Mayor & Council prior to the sunset date of the ordinance.
