November 15 meeting of Eureka City Council has an interim urgency ordinance imposing a moratorium on recreational marijuana and a conditional use permit invitation for a medical cannabis dispensary

Prop 64 passed in California this week.

I have contacted some lawyers and local stakeholders about this and will update post, if necessary.



On the City Council agenda for the November 15 meeting are two items.
