Tempe City Council poised to limit medical marijuana access
Tomorrow, January 27, the Tempe City Council is slated to vote on an ordinance regulating medical marijuana dispensaries and cultivation within the city.
The ordinance would severely inconvenience Tempe’s patients by only allowing medical marijuana facilities to operate in a very limited area of the city – mostly industrial areas – and restricting operating hours to 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Please e-mail the council today!
Briefly and politely ask the council to amend the current ordinance so that medical marijuana dispensaries are treated like medical facilities – not some kind of nuisance. Then, please call the office of Mayor Hugh Hallman at (480) 350-8865 and give him the same message.
Also, please attend the council hearing on Thursday to voice your support for medical marijuana in Tempe.
