Marana possible site of latest marijuana dispensary

MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

One medical marijuana dispensary in Marana is closer to opening its doors.

Tonight the community gets a chance to weigh in on the possible new addition.  The facility still awaits state approval before they can officially open. 

Those living within 300 feet of the marijuana dispensary located off I-10 and Orange Grove can speak up for or against it tonight. 

The facility is looking for approval to get their conditional use permit which is the local zoning permit they are required to have.  The process with the state isn't tied to this local process.

Marana planner Robert Clements says the applicant for Nature Med meets all the requirements within the zoning code.  As of right now, only one complaint has been filed by the owners of neighboring properties.  But often time most people show up to the public hearing to voice their opinions.  That's what makes tonight so unpredictable. 

The planning commission meeting will give neighboring properties the chance to weigh in on the marijuana dispensary. 

They should have a decision by the end of the night, but they could postpone it till another meeting. 

The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. tonight, inside Marana Town Hall.
