Orlando to greenlight more medical marijuana dispensaries

By Brendan O’Connor

The Municipal Planning Board will hear a pitch to revise Part 4(2) R of Chapter 48 of City Code that would delete the current caps on Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers within city limits and remove restrictions on the cultivation and processing of the drug.

If approved by the Municipal Planning Board at the scheduled February 18 hearing, the proposal would go before City Council for a vote later that same month.
