Medical marijuana in Lady Lake

Despite concerns presented by Lady Lake Police Chief Chris McKinstry, Lady Lake commissioners chose not to continue their moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries in the city. The one that was in place ended Feb. 3. Commissioner Ruth Kussard tried to keep the moratorium, saying nearby Summerfield has dispensaries available, but she could not get a second to her motion to make it long term. Mayor Jim Richards noted that Florida voters supported the issue of medical marijuana in the 2016 election.
