COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- Marco Island will soon be the latest Southwest Florida city to allow medical marijuana dispensaries within city limits.

City council members have directed the city attorney to come up with a resolution saying medical marijuana dispensaries are permitted on the island.

Florida voters gave a thumbs to medical marijuana in 2016.

Since then, individual counties and cities have passed their own ordinances regulating dispensaries.
