Medical marijuana dispensaries now officially allowed in Green Cove Springs
Medical marijuana treatment centers or dispensaries are now allowed to legally operate within Green Cove Springs city limits – two years after more than 70 percent of its citizens voted in favor of it.
“I think if people need it then having a dispensary is a good idea,” said Georgia Henshall.
The moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries expired Tuesday so city leaders passed an official ordinance that includes defining medical marijuana as being “drug and drug sales.”
“They would be allowed wherever we have commercial categories which would allow drug and drug sales which is what state statute requires,” said Janis Fleet, development services director for the city.
Essentially dispensaries would be allowed anywhere pharmacies are allowed.
The red and pink areas of this map show where they will be allowed, primarily down U.S. 17 and 16 with the exception of certain areas where there are schools.

Atlanta rapper and actor T.I., who reinvented himself as an activist and political force after time in federal prison and years of trouble with the law, was arrested early Wednesday outside his gated community in Henry County, authorities said.
The music star, whose legal name is Clifford Harris Jr., was arrested after returning to the Eagle’s Landing Country Club community in the 100 block of Eagle’s Landing Way around 4 a.m.
T.I. did not have his key and argued with a security guard who would not grant him access, Henry County police said. At some point, the rapper called a friend who eventually joined him.
T.I. was arrested on misdemeanor charges of simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. His friend, Marquinarius Holmes, 40, of Stockbridge, was arrested on outstanding charges out of Clayton County and for not having proof of car insurance, the sheriff’s office told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

NEW YORK (CBS Local) – As regulations crack down on the dangers of cigarette smoke, a new study is warning that many parents are undoing all of this progress by exposing their children to secondhand marijuana smoke.
A study says more parents are smoking marijuana around their children Researchers point to the decriminalization of marijuana for the change The study warns that children are being exposed to more secondhand smoke because of higher marijuana use
According to researchers from Columbia University, the number of cigarette-smoking parents who said they used marijuana increased from 11 percent in 2002 to over 17 percent in 2015. “Overall, cannabis use is much more common among cigarette-smoking parents versus nonsmokers, but it is increasing in both groups,” lead researcher Renee Goodwin said, via UPI.
That being said, fewer people were found to be smoking tobacco products in recent years, including parents. Researchers found that tobacco cigarette use has fallen by seven percent during the decade-long survey. Some of the credit for the decline likely goes to stricter laws on cigarettes, which have reduced the
