The Menifee City Council will hold a public hearing during its July 16 meeting to consider recommendation of an ordinance prohibiting mobile medical marijuana operations in the city.

This ordinance is being proposed at the suggestion of City Attorney Julie Biggs, who noted during a recent city council meeting that some attorneys are questioning whether the State Supreme Court's ban on marijuana dispensaries applies to mobile medical marijuana dispensaries. There have been reports throughout California of individuals and/or businesses selling medical marijuana through various delivery services and mobile facilities.

Earlier this month, the City of Riverside approved an ordinance to prohibit medical marijuana dispensaries to "preserve public peace, health, and safety," according to city council minutes.

The City of Menifee's official notice of the July 16 public hearing states that "if this project is challenged in court, the issues may be limited to those raised at the public hearing, described in this notice, or in written correspondence delivered to the Council at, or prior to, the public hearing."

The July 16 city council meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 29714 Haun Road.
