Vandalia replacing medical marijuana moratorium with ban

The Vandalia City Council took steps this week to ban selling, processing or cultivating medical marijuana in the city.

The new ordinance, approved on first reading, will replace a 270-day moratorium that was passed in August.

The moratorium was intended to give City Council an opportunity to research the issue and weigh the pros and cons of permitting such uses in the city limits.

The ordinance will not prohibit the legal personal use or legal possession of medical marijuana by individuals within the city. 

The ordinance came after the Vandalia Planning Commission voted 4-1 to recommend its approval.
