Huber Heights approves ban on medical marijuana in 5 to 4 vote


HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) – In a 4 to 5 vote, Huber Heights City Council members approved a permanent ban on medical marijuana processors, cultivators and dispensaries.

This is a major defeat for the Paragon Development Group, which was initially granted a provisional license by the State to cultivate marijuana within city limits–which is now no longer a possibility with this ban now in place.

The paragon development group initially planned on opening up a cultivation site on Executive Blvd after becoming one of 11 companies awarded a professional cultivation license from the state of Ohio back in November.

Paragon planned to employ 15 to 20 people, including, 5 executives, 3 trimmers, 3 growers and 2 support staff.

No word yet on the company’s future plans.
