Glendale considers ban on marijuana stores

The Glendale City Council is considering enacting a permanent ban on medical marijuana dispensaries.

The ordinance was introduced Tuesday, just two months before a moratorium prohibiting the shops is set to expire, the Glendale News-Press reported.

The council enacted the moratorium in 2009 to prevent dispensaries from opening, but it will expire in September with no option for an extension.

Last month, city attorneys were directed to draft an all-out ban.
