By unanimous vote, the members of the Danville Town Council Tuesday approved the extension of a moratorium on the location of any medical marijuana dispensaries in Town.

The moratorium was originally approved in October 2009.  On Tuesday, the Town Council approved an emergency ordinance continuing the ban on locating dispensaries in Town, and also approved a first reading of an ordinance that will extend the ban until October 2011.  The second reading of the ordinance will be held at their regular meeting Oct. 19, 2010.
