Arlington passes 6-month moratorium on marijuana establishments

ARLINGTON — The Arlington City Council voted unanimously on Monday, Nov. 4, to approve an ordinance adopting a moratorium on the establishment of marijuana producer, processor and retailer establishments, as well as the licensing and permitting of the same. However, rather than going with city staff's initial recommendations for a three-month moratorium, the Council followed the advice of Arlington City Attorney Steve Peiffle to extend it to six months, just so they would run less risk of needing to renew the moratorium before they might reach their decision.
