The owner of Toke and Tell medical marijuana dispensary and her attorney queried members of the Natchez planning commission about why her business was not the first to receive approval, despite being the first to submit an application.
Dr. Tina Bruce and her attorney, Breshatta Davis of Monroe, Louisiana, challenged members of the city’s planning commission Thursday night about why, since Bruce was the first to submit an application to the city for a medical marijuana dispensary, her dispensary was not the first to receive approval.
Bruce said she submitted her application on June 15, 2022, the first to do so for a medical marijuana dispensary.
“I gave it to Frankie Legaux (the city’s planning director). She said the ordinance for dispensaries was not completed, but it should be done by July 1,” Bruce said.
Officials at the state level who approve medical dispensary licensure, told Bruce her application could not be approved on the state level
