The City of Paso Robles is preparing to issue its first-ever license for a mobile medical marijuana dispensary, according to its Administrative Services Department.

The City Council decided Tuesday night not to move forward with a mobile dispensary ban and voted 3-to-2 in favor of adopting a report that outlined their legal status.

It took a business application to move the issue to where we are today, says Jim Throop, the city's Director of Administrative Services. \

The City of Paso Robles will once again take up the issue of mobile medical marijuana dispensaries at its meeting on Tuesday, August 5.

Earlier this month, the Paso Robles City Council deadlocked on the issue, as only four members were present allowing for an even split.

Currently, Paso Robles has a law against brick-and-mortar dispensaries, but there is nothing in the code that bans mobile versions.

UPDATE: July 16, 2018

The City of Paso Robles is unsure at this point how leaders will move forward with the issue of mobile medical marijuana dispensaries.

Tuesday night's well-attended city council meeting ended with a deadlock on the issue. Councilman John Hamon was absent leaving just four members and a two-two split.

City law bans brick-and-mortar pot dispensaries, but does not address mobile versions.

The council meets next on August 5, and the agenda for that meeting is still in the development stages according to the city.
