The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services released its final rules for medical marijuana operations, so the city of Blue Springs needs to further amend its regulations to comply.
These amendments include adding “Medical Marijuana Transportation Facility” as an allowed use of land and regulating where and how it operates within the city. The amendments also define the process to allow residents to apply for alternatives to some of the strict regulations being implemented for medical marijuana facilities, according to council documents.
The City Council is scheduled to hold a hearing on those changes at 6 p.m. Monday.
The regulations already passed refer to cultivation and testing centers and dispensaries, and limit where they can be placed within the city and what times they can operate.
