COSHOCTON – After much discussion,
Coshocton City Council passed a res-
olution during a special meeting held
May 30 to welcome medical marijua-
na manufacturing facilities and put a
six month moratorium on dispensary
facilities in the City of Coshocton.
Applications to establish such facil-
ities are due to the state this month
and before city officials decided their
stance on the topic they wanted input
from the public.
Council chambers was filled with
members of the public who want-
ed to voice their opinions about the
medical marijuana industry and
those in attendance also heard from
two representatives from a company
interested in constructing a facility in
Mayor Steve Mercer opened up the
meeting by explaining to those pres-
ent that the state has already passed
legislation legalizing medical mari-
juana and recently wrapped up reg-
ulations for manufacturing facilities.
Regulations for dispensaries, however,
will not be wrapped up until Septem
