DEADWOOD — Lawrence County will start small when it comes to allowing marijuana, as Tuesday County Commissioners heard the first reading of ordinances regulating cannabis.

As outlined in the General District Provisions amended ordinance, the county will allow for one cannabis dispensary, which must be at least 1,000 feet from: a single-family dwelling, a public or private school, a church, public service facility, park, or another medical cannabis establishment. The dispensary will be allowed to operate between the hours of 8 a.m. and 10 p.m., seven days a week.  

The ordinance Creating Licensing Provisions for Cannabis Establishments sets forth a $10,000 application fee and a $500 renewal fee. Issuance of the license is dependent upon: the applicant providing valid information; the applicant being 21 years of age; no violent felony offense convictions in the past 10 years in any jurisdiction; meeting the applicable zoning requirements; no previous revocations of a cannabis establishment license; and other criteria.

The license remains valid for one year and may be renewed only by making an application per county policy.
