Marana says commercial pot growers not welcome

MARANA, Ariz. (AP) — Marana says commercial growers of medical marijuana aren’t welcome unless they’re dispensaries located within the Tucson suburb.

The Marana Town Council has approved a ban proposed by the police chief in response to a proposal for an indoor marijuana farm that would supply a dispensary in Ajo (AH-hoe) in western Pima County.

Police Chief Terry Rozema said transporting marijuana from the farm to the store would attract crime and stretch police resources thin.

The Arizona Daily Star (http://bit.ly/17a6a3P ) reports that town leaders feared farmers would grow marijuana in Marana to supply many dispensaries.
