After months of , Sacramento County has brought the hammer down on marijuana dispensaries.
The county board of supervisors voted Dec. 6 to update its zoning code to ban any land use that violates federal, state law or both, The Sacramento Bee reported.
The county planning commission opposed the move, but Interim Planning Manager Leighann Moffitt last week blamed that decision on "confusion" and concerns.
Only seven dispenaries are left open, with two more expected to close soon, Moffitt said.
After hearing numerous public comments, the board voted 4-1 to ban dispensaries. Supervisor Phil Serna was the sole dissenting vote, saying the zoning code amendment wouldn't change current county policy.
As soon as the item passed, several audience members erupted into protest.
