Today is the day to apply for your Conditional Use Permit to distribute medical marijuana.

Permits could cost as much at $100,000 each and take from 6 to 12 months to get. If you get one it’s only good for 5 years. Some of the regulations are … dispensaries must be 1000 feet from parks, schools, churches, playgrounds and 100-feet away from residential zones. The office open at 8:00 AM
