Collier County Board of Commissioners put the ongoing controversy of whether to allow medical marijuana facilities to rest this week. It voted unanimously in favor of enacting an ordinance banning the establishment of medical marijuana facilities in unincorporated Collier.
The issue has been discussed off and on since 2018 when the county disapproved the land development code allowing dispensaries in the same zoning district as pharmacies in unincorporated Collier County. It evolved into an ordinance banning the establishment or location of treatment centers within most parts of the county. City of Naples has a similar ban in place.
