CORNING, Calif. - The Corning City Council is considering banning pot dispensaries in the city limits if Ordinance 680 passes. They will hold a special meeting on Sep. 17, 2019. 

Ordinance 680 was created by the city council back on Aug. 13, it would ban commercial pot use and delivery of the substance.

It would allow the personal cultivation of marijuana for people living in Corning.

The ordinance says people can grow up to six plants inside their homes, not outside.

If people want to grow marijuana within their homes, they would need a license from the city, according to the ordinance. 

Action News Now reporter Jafet Serrato spoke with people to get their reaction of the ordinance.

"I'm kind of for banning it just cause it’s a small town,” said Angelica Silva. "Kids can really easily get friends with the wrong people. to get involved with just marijuana and showing its more open. it's kind of a gateway to worse things.”  

Marrollee Horton is against it.

“I think there’s a lot of people that do use it for medical instead of for heavy and bad drugs. I think they take marijuana or they smoke it. There's a lot of people that use that and its for pain and for a lot of things,” Horton said. 

The city council will hold a special meeting on the matter on Sep. 17, at 7:30 p.m on 794 Third St., in Corning.

The weather over northern California has finally calmed substantially. Although it would be fantastic to have valley rain and mountain snow, we have some exceptional weather ahead for the end of October and beginning of November.
