Temporary moratorium on medical marijuana
The West Chester Board of Trustees, on June 13, approved a six-month moratorium on the authorization or establishment of any medical marijuana-related businesses in West Chester Township.
West Chester Township will take the next six months to consider, review and make recommendations on zoning, prohibition and/or limitations of medical marijuana so any necessary regulations conform to goals of the West Chester Township Board of Trustees and help ensure the public peace, health, safety, and welfare of its citizens.
