ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – Amidst some confusion about the implementation of Amendment 2 at the medical marijuana workshop in St. Johns County on Thursday evening, county staff said a draft of potential zoning regulations could be presented to the commissioners by July.
The staff-led workshop was steered by Assistant County Attorney Paolo Soria, who spent the better half of an hour attempting to explain current state laws on medicinal cannabis to those in attendance. All of this being a response to an approved St. Johns County temporary moratorium on the sale and production of marijuana products that was passed in March.
The moratorium is slated to last up to 12 months with the possibility of an early repeal that is left mostly up to the St. Johns County commissioners. If land development regulations are not ready to be enacted in a year’s time, the board can also choose to extend the moratorium, unless otherwise ruled by a potential state law.
