San Diego Considers Sale Of Recreational Marijuana

GUEST:

David Garrick, reporter, The San Diego Union-Tribune


Transcript

A city proposal would allow San Diego's licensed medical marijuana dispensaries to sell recreational marijuana starting Jan. 1, 2018.

That's when recreational marijuana sales are allowed to begin in California under Proposition 64.

The proposed regulation, which goes before the planning commission Thursday, would make some tweaks to the city's 2014 medical marijuana dispensary ordinance.

This week, the city council will also consider a 45-day moratorium on personal outdoor recreational marijuana cultivation.

David Garrick, who covers city hall for The San Diego Union-Tribune, breaks down the proposed marijuana related rules Monday on Midday Edition.
