A majority of the County Commission supports the use of marijuana for medical purposes.
Commissioners David Salazar, Nicolas Leger and June Garcia all agreed on the issue. Their colleagues, Albert Padilla and Marcellino Ortiz, couldn’t be reached for comment.
The commission plans to hold a special hearing on the subject Nov. 24.
The issue is particularly relevant with the commission because of the county housing authority’s recent decision to stop giving a federal subsidy to a resident who uses medical marijuana.
