Marysville bans sale, growth of recreational-use pot

Marysville city officials Tuesday night voted to block recreational-use marijuana from being grown or sold in the city, also blocking any business associated with it, according to a KCRA report.

The sale of recreational-use marijuana is set to become legal in less two weeks throughout California, though city leaders in Marysville said they're not ready to regulate the industry at the local level or deal with the potential side effects that come with it, according to the report.

Tuesday's 4-0 vote enables a temporary ban until the council can determine which elements to allow and which to permanently prevent.

Marysville leaders hope to come up with their own ordinances at the start of 2018.
