Why is the city licensing THC?

The state legislature legalized the sale, possession, and use of intoxicating hemp-derived tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) to adults 21 and older with packaging restrictions. It did not include an enforcement provision to ensure age limits and packaging are in compliance with state law. The City Council carefully discussed the sale and use of intoxicating hemp-derived products including the regulations currently in place for other products such as tobacco and alcohol. They agree to allow local businesses to be competitive with neighboring communities with the same precautions for similar products. Licensing allows for identification of retailers and begins the pathway to ensure compliance. The license fee is comparable to similar licenses which covers the application cost for review, background checks and compliance checks.
