BANGOR — The Bangor City Council will vote next week on a 90-day moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries.

Members of a council committee reached a compromise Tuesday aimed at giving city officials more time to amend land development laws to comply with the Maine Medical Marijuana Act amendment, which was approved by voters in November.

The law, which lets patients grow marijuana, would initially allow eight dispensaries across the state.

The Bangor Daily News reports that the moratorium, which still needs approval by the full council, would give Bangor until early August to approve any applications.
