2 Elko City Councilman To Explain Opposition To Marijuana Dispensary

Two Elko City Councilman are maintaining their opposition to marijuana.

Reece Keener and John Patrick Rice are scheduled to discuss their positions on a proposed ordinance to prohibit marijuana dispensaries in Elko on Friday night at an Elko Libertarian Party event.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports the question of whether to permit a cannabis dispensary in the city has gone back and forth between the Elko Planning Commission and the city council over the last couple of months.

In December, the planning commission narrowly rejected a proposed ordinance to ban marijuana sales. When the council met January 9, it again voted to put the ordinance back on the agenda.
