The City and Borough of Sitka voted to use license fees charged to prospective marijuana businesses to pay for student travel.
Pot entrepreneurs will be able to grow their crop in some low-density neighborhoods, outside the city’s urban service boundary.
A zoning ordinance that allows growing commercial marijuana in low-density neighborhoods is heading back to the Juneau Assembly for public testimony.
The proposed ordinance specifies where marijuana can be grown, processed and sold. A moratorium on marijuana businesses expires at the end of the year.
