Medical marijuana public hearing is Feb. 15 in Warren County


The public hearing to consider a zoning change for growing medical marijuana is Feb. 15 before the Warren County Planning and Zoning Commission.

The hearing was scheduled for Jan. 18, but had to be postponed after only four of the seven commissioners attended the meeting. The commission must have five members present for a quorum.

Two of the commissioners were absent because of COVID, and another missed the meeting because of work.

Five people had requested to speak publicly during the Jan. 18 hearing.

The zoning change is under consideration because Nicole L. Vandiver had approached the county wanting to put a grow house on her property, which is currently zoned agricultural, Roemer said in the email. Vandiver currently grows hemp on her land and hopes to expand into medical marijuana cultivation and distribution, which can currently only be done with an approved conditional use permit in a commercial highway district.
