A public hearing on a potential amendment to the Town of Paradise Valley’s medical marijuana dispensary regulations ordinance has been continued five times since June 2019.
Town Attorney Andrew Miller says there is no rush to make changes to the regulations, compounded by the COVID-19 matter and budget issues. Further, it appears there may be some legal matters afoot concerning the proposed changes.
“We have continued this item as there is no rush to making changes to our regulations on medical marijuana dispensaries at this time. Also, dealing to COVID-19 matters and budget issues related to the impacts of COVID-19 have monopolized staff time, thus lower priorities such as this housekeeping item are not a rush,” Mr. Miller said in an emailed response to Independent Newsmedia.
