CORNING — The City Council voted Tuesday to oppose the Bureau of Cannabis Control’s new regulations on marijuana.
The bureau proposed regulations that would limit local jurisdiction’s ability to decide on whether cannabis deliveries can be allowed in the area. This would override local regulations on cannabis.
“Most jurisdictions do not like it when state or federal government puts things like this onto cities,” said City Manager Kristina Miller.
Councilman Robert Snow and Mayor Doug Hatley both voiced their support for Miller writing a letter of opposition before the council unanimously voted to approve it.
“That was a big point in discussion was the cities’ control as this moves forward,” Snow said.
The council meets at 6:30 p.m. the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month in City Hall, 794 Third St. Meetings are free and open to the public.
