The City govt. of El Reno, is refusing a business permit to a fully legal medical marijuana dispensary. The rationale of the council seems to be claiming that a church will be suffering irreparable harm by having this medical dispensary in a commercial district which a church previously chose to also set up in.
The council moved quickly to make special ordinances specifically targeted at banning the new class of medicine, just weeks after the people of Oklahoma voted to remove the ban for those whose physicians directed such care.
Attorney Ronald Durbin posted this statement;
State law says; "F. No city or local municipality may unduly change or restrict zoning laws to prevent the opening of a retail marijuana establishment. "
