Recreational marijuana vote goes up in smoke in Sarasota


SARASOTA – A Sarasota County commission discussion on recreational marijuana has been postponed.

The discussion was about a ban on recreational marijuana, but it had to be shelved because its biggest proponent, Commissioner Mike Moran, had a death in the family, and was unable attend to meeting Wednesday night.

Recently, the commission voted to draft an amendment to current county laws to prohibit the growing, processing and sale of recreational marijuana should it ever become legal in the state.

Wednesday night, the commission was expecting to set a date for a public discussion on the issue.
