The Aberdeen City Council took the next step in marijuana zoning last night and could allow marijuana in their downtown.
The council passed a report from the Planning Commission that recommended that the production, processing, and sale of marijuana should be permitted in both light industrial and industrial zones, and that retail sales should be permitted in both General Commercial and Downtown Commercial zones. This would allow a retail store within the primary downtown of Aberdeen.
The report also said that collective gardens will remain banned in all zones of the city.
Before the rezoning is official it will have to go through a public hearing on March 12th and then an ordinance at the following meeting based on what the council decides.
