Collier to consider marijuana moratorium

NAPLES, Fla - Collier County Commissioners will introduce a proposal Tuesday at the county commission meeting temporarily banning medical marijuana in the county.

If passed, Collier would be the largest municipality in Southwest Florida to pass a freeze on marijuana dispensaries since voters legalized medicinal marijuana in Florida last fall.

The moratorium would last 6 months, while commissioners figure out how dispensaries fit into zoning laws.

Marco Island is considering a similar ordinance.

Bonita Springs, and Estero passed temporary freezes on dispensaries shortly after Amendment 2 was approved.
