Three Rivers municipal officials later this month are expected to vote on ordinances related to medical marijuana facilities.
The impending action comes after Mayor Tom Lowry and commissioners conducted a pair of public hearings Tuesday. The proposed ordinances center on the operation and zoning of the facilities within the city limits.
The issue drew considerable discussion and a number of questions remain outstanding. Commissioner Carolyn McNary suggested the commission ask someone with medical expertise to attend a meeting and elaborate on the merits of medical marijuana.
The matter is slated for a vote at the commission’s March 20 meeting.
