The Prince George’s County council approved legislation that keeps medical marijuana dispensaries 500 feet from day cares and schools and 300 feet from residential areas.
An amendment to the legislation may also keep the dispensaries away from churches and summer camps.
The issue arose after a company planned to open right next to Connect Church of Camp Springs. The church would have shared a wall with the marijuana facility.
There was a proposal to reduce the proximity requirements. The council made the decision on the legislation after many residents and businesses voiced their opinions.
