Marana says commercial pot growers not welcome

Updated:

MARANA, Ariz. (AP) - Marana says commercial growers of medical marijuana aren't welcome unless they're dispensaries located within the Tucson suburb.

The Marana Town Council has approved a ban proposed by the police chief in response to a proposal for an indoor marijuana farm that would supply a dispensary in Ajo in western Pima County.

Police Chief Terry Rozema said transporting marijuana from the farm to the store would attract crime and stretch police resources thin.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that town leaders feared farmers would grow marijuana in Marana to supply many dispensaries.
