FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) --Medical marijuana cleared another hurdle Monday night in Merced.
A city council ordinance passed 4 to 3. It allows people with medicinal marijuana cards to grow up to six plants.
It also allows four dispensaries in professional or commercial office zones.
They must also have a state license and be away from schools, parks and libraries.
Merced will start drafting regulations.
Once they are in place the city will start taking applications.
