Nelson city council has voted 5-2 to proceed with a zoning amendment to regulate marijuana dispensaries.
But a public hearing needs to be held before the changes can be adopted.
Councillor Janice Morrison thinks it’s the right move.
Despite their proliferation, councillor Valerie Warmington doesn’t think dispensaries in the city are a problem.
Warmington thinks the zoning bylaw is an awkward tool and would rather have a broader discussion.
