The Galt City Council voiced support Tuesday night for an ordinance that will temporarily prohibit the location or operation of marijuana-related businesses in the city limits.

The catalyst for the ordinance is the possible passage of Proposition 19. It is a statewide initiative that would allow people who are over the age of 21 to possess one ounce or cultivate marijuana on private property in an area up to 25 square feet.

    Jim... you sound like a time traveler that came from 1700 AD.... no feasibility study???
    I guess if you could get rid of the lawyers, the environmental groups, the green groups, the unions... the... well all the others... then you might consider no study to justify your position to avoid lawsuits... back where you came from, that was no problem... but in today’s world.... no way…. Jim… that would make too much sense.

    $100,000 to see if the project is feasable??? Please city council.... do your job!!!! You now have a cost analysis to review. Study up some on Solar Farms and then decide on moving forward with a project in regards to Solar Farms. This article makes it sound like a salesmen approached the city and BAM!!!! We have a great idea!!!!!!!!!! SOLAR FARMS!!! Now we just need a consultant. Good thing we have one in our back pocket.... $100,000 to let us know if we should do this.... SURE!!!!!!

    To me $100,000 seems a little excessive. I guess if it wasn't my hard earned money then it wouldn't be so difficult. ;)
