San Leandro Pot Moratorium Extended Another Year

Sept. 7, 2011 | The City Council unanimously extended a one-year moratorium on the business applications and zoning pertaining to medical marijuana dispensaries in San Leandro. The moratorium now runs until Sept. 20, 2012.

In the meantime, city officials say they will monitor Oakland’s trip through the legal wilderness of medical marijuana for clues for how San Leandro will proceed in the future.

“It’s my passion to tax, control and regulate it,” said Prola, who has been medical marijuana’s most fervent defender on the council.
