Union Board of Aldermen: City opts out on prescription marijuana salesPosted by On

Following a public hearing last week on the issue of allowing the sale of prescription marijuana in the city limits, the Board of Alderman reversed their April decision.

Union will join most of the other area cities and counties in not allowing the sale of the drug under the auspices of sate regulation.

About 50 people attended a Monday night forum on the issue, with almost all opposing the sale. The following night, at the regular May meeting, the aldermen voted 4 to 1 to opt out, with Alderman Ricky Sistrunk being the lone dissenter.

Currently, under state law, the sale of medicinal marijuana is legal in counties or cities, unless they choose to ‘opt out’ of allowing it.

 Other issues on the May agenda:

◆ Voted to put speed bumps on a two block stretch on Long Street between Jackson Road and James St.

Residents have complained for years about the going-to-and-from school traffic there.
