Swanton Council votes against amending medical marijuana ordinance

Swanton Village Council on Monday decided on Monday not to amend an ordinance prohibiting medical marijuana cultivation, processing and retail dispensing.

Rosanna Hoelzle, village administrator, said she was approached last week about the possibility of amending the ordinance. She said Schmidt Brothers is the company that talked to her.

After several people from the audience spoke against a marijuana cultivation site in the village, council decided to let a proposed amendment to the ordinance, which was approved by an emergency measure in January, die.

More details to come.
