FLORENCE — There are no known plans for a recreational marijuana dispensary in Florence, but an ordinance is pending before the Town Council that would allow one.
The council heard the first reading of an ordinance regulating the sale and use of recreational marijuana in town, in keeping with the passage of Arizona’s Prop 207 in November. The council took no action Monday, and will consider approval at some future date.
Town Manager Brent Billingsley told the council town code pertaining to medical marijuana is fairly strict, while the ordinance being proposed now for recreational marijuana is “on the lenient side,” based on his conversations with individual council members.
