Ellsworth to hold a public meeting on marijuana

ELLSWORTH - Marijuana has been a heated topic for the past few years, but as more cities look to allow retail stores to open, some cities like Ellsworth are looking to discuss the topic further.

On Wednesday at 6 p.m the city is holding a conversation with citizens at the Moore Community Center.

 

This will allow people to hear from members of law enforcement and healthcare. It gives people a place to ask questions and voice their concerns.

 

Ellsworth city manager David Cole said "We need to not only gauge the temperature of the community, but get a better understanding what the implications are for the community and for our neighborhoods as we go into uncharted territories."

 

The city is waiting for legislature to create guidelines for cities in January.
