COOLIDGE — With the passage of Proposition 207 last month, Coolidge City Council took several preliminary steps toward addressing the expanded legalization of marijuana and what it means for the city.
At their last meeting of the year on Monday, the council discussed adjusting the zoning code by putting medical and recreational marijuana into one category for planning purposes.
Ultimately the decision was postponed until January. Mayor Jon Thompson expressed a desire to see a map that would allow council to see where marijuana can be sold in Coolidge based on current zoning. Current restrictions determine where facilities can be located, and how far away they need to be from places such as schools or churches.
