PRINCETON, WV (LOOTPRESS)— During a Princeton City Council meeting on Monday, the board went through the second and final reading about medical marijuana.
The ordinance allows for dispensaries to sell medical marijuana in the C-2 commercial zone. That includes roads like Stafford Drive, Walker Street and Roger Street. Dispensaries will not be able to set up a store 1,000 feet away from schools and daycare property lines.
Members of the city council voted unanimously to pass the second reading after residents made no public comments.
Princeton Mayor David Graham hopes that this will help residents get access to the medicinal properties of the plant.
”We hope this will be beneficial for residents who need it,” said Graham.
Medical marijuana cards are available to eligible residents that have serious medical conditions. For more information about the card application process, medical marijuana and West Virginia, visit the Office of Medical Cannabis’ website.
Recreational marijuana is illegal in West Virginia and a person found with any amount for personal use can be fined up to $1,000 and receive six months in jail.
