Medical marijuana dispensaries targeted for ban in Collier County – Naples Daily News

Anyone needing medical marijuana in Collier County will need to drive to a neighboring county, get it delivered by mail or use the sole dispensary in Marco Island.

At least that’s the intent behind a Collier County Commission unanimous vote Tuesday to prohibit medical marijuana dispensaries in unincorporated areas of the county through an ordinance that needs to be drafted and brought back for ratifying.

The ordinance ban will be brought to the county board at its next scheduled meeting Feb. 14, according to the commission calendar.

Commissioners Chris Hall and Dan Kowal, both new to the commission since the November general election, support a ban and said it was time to stop kicking the can down the road.
