Earlier this summer, the city of Tracy approved its first marijuana dispensary, but some neighbors argue that city officials shouldn’t be so quick to approve retail marijuana shops in the downtown area.
On Tuesday, they are planning a protest before the Tracy city council meeting, when leaders are set to discuss the future of cannabis dispensary locations in the city limits.
City officials have approved 17 pot businesses, but they say they want to maintain the quality of life in Tracy.
Residents are upset after hearing that five cannabis businesses already approved would go in and around our downtown area.
Some say they are not against cannabis shops in town, but they don’t want them so close to where young people hang out, including a music and dance studio, restaurants and coffee shops.
The city council wants to impose a temporary moratorium for 45 days on the intake, processing, and approval of any more cannabis applications.
Residents and business owners plan to meet at 5:30 p.m. at Gary’s Floors on W. 10th Street.
The Tracy City Council will meet at 7 p.m. to discuss how they will proceed with cannabis shops in town.
