Council Imposes Moratorium on New Dispensaries

The Santa Barbara City Council decisively took the first step to impose a moratorium on new medical marijuana dispensaries. The Council’s goal is to limit new dispensaries until they can pass rules regulating where pot dispensaries can be located and how they must be run, since there have been complaints recently about a couple of them. Currently, there are 10 dispensaries in town, and most of the owners are in favor of the moratorium.
