Medical marijuana ban extended

CHULA VISTA — The moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries that was set to expire on September 9, 2009, has been extended for 10 months while city officials monitor a related appellate court case, study information they have gathered and decide how or whether to regulate pot collectives.

City officials said they need more time to figure out how to regulate medical marijuana dispensaries because there are no ordinances that govern them now.

This story is a classic case of the "out-of-the-box" issue of Medical Marijuana. Has the allowance of dispensaries created a situation of putting the "cart before the horse"? What I find funny is the response by the City Counselman, Rudy Ramirez. I wonder if he intended this pun when he stated, “I don’t feel a burning need to move forward on this quickly. I feel it would be better to let other jurisdictions move quickly on this.”

Is this what they are all waiting for? No one wants to be the first to step out of the box and suggest a place to begin. If they just do something, then they will know what works and doesn't work.
