Wayne mayor: Ordinance approved of full ban on retail sale of marijuana
The mayor of Wayne says an ordinance on a full ban of the retail sale of marijuana was approved Wednesday night by a vote of 8-1.
In Wayne, a township of over 55,000 -- about 18,000 residents voted to legalize marijuana in the November election. But the Wayne council introduced an ordinance on March 3 to ban the sale.
Mayor Chris Vergano says, "We just don't believe it's worth the effort or the time it would take our community and what our community can become."
Retail legislation gave towns such as Wayne 180 days to pass an ordinance to either approve or disapprove marijuana sales.
