by Beecher Threatt
beecher@ouraynews.com

On Tuesday the Board of County Commissioners moved forward an ordinance to prohibit recreational marijuana facilities in the unincorporated areas of the county for one year, subject to review before an Oct. 15, 2014 sunset date. On that date the moratorium will expire, unless earlier repealed. The board may enact a longer moratorium before that date.
Exempted from the moratorium is the one existing grow facility in the county, which will allow it to grow marijuana for recreational use sales, provided the facility does not expand. It is currently licensed to grow marijuana for medicinal use, and the exemption will allow sale of plants for either medicinal or recreational purposes.
