My municipality doesn't have enough time to amend or pass a new ordinance by December 15, 2017. How should this be handled? My municipality's ordinance requires state approval in order to get local approval. How should this be handled?

LARA recognizes that amending or passing ordinances at the local level is a time- consuming task and that it might not be feasible for a local governmental entity to accomplish before December 15, 2017. LARA also recognizes that certain local medical marijuana ordinances – that have already been passed – require state approval before local approval is given. Local units of government may pass a resolution that authorizes the clerk to sign the attestation form – which will be provided by LARA – in order to allow for local authorization of continued operation of proposed medical marijuana facilities.
