RED BLUFF, Calif. - Those in Red Bluff could soon have marijuana dispensaries around the city and locals have mixed feelings about it.

During the Jan. 21 council meeting, the city will be discussing the possibility of forming a committee that would study and make recommendations regarding allowing marijuana dispensaries to open in town. Some people are for the idea but others are not.

"I don’t really agree with the whole thing, I'm one of those people that marijuana was illegal when I was a kid and it will probably always be illegal in my mind," said local Steve Siders.

"It doesn’t bother me one bit, I don’t use it but if somebody needs it they might as well get it," said citizen John Scott. "It would probably help create a few jobs around here."

Red Bluff Mayor Daniella Eyestone said everything is still in the preliminary stages. On Tuesday the council will see if there is any interest in forming the marijuana dispensary committee.

If the council has no interest in the committee, it will not move forward but if they do move forward, they will begin the discussion of possible committee members.

Additionally, Eyestone also said if the city does move forward, the process could take at least a year - leaving the city-wide ban on marijuana in effect.
