Council kicks cannabis consumption down the road

Jun 6, 2019

At last night's Kenai City Council meeting, the debate over on-site consumption of cannabis in stores stretched for an hour-plus, but eventually, the council voted to postpone the ordinance until the next council meeting. 

The ordinance would ban the practice, which was recently approved by the state. 

The purpose of postponing was to more closely examine whether the council wished to ban on-site cannabis consumption, or impose a moratorium on it for a year or two. It will be brought back up at the council's next meeting on June 19.
