Contractors perform dirt work at the location of Cameron’s first medical marijuana dispensary.

Planning and Zoning approves construction of medical marijuana dispensary

The Cameron Planning and Zoning Commission approved the site plan for Cameron's first medical marijuana dispensary following a special meeting Tuesday night. 

The plan, submitted by Bloom Medicinal, requests construction for a medical marijuana dispensary located across from Cameron Coop at 102 S. Walnut Street. 

"We will get a good amount of taxes from that facility. Then, you also get a good amount of taxes from people coming in and visiting from outside whether they buy gas or eat dinner here and, maybe, stay in a hotel," Rasmussen said. "All of those things help because every little bit raises things up ... I have no comment on the type of business. It's a legal business that comports with the state law. We're happy to have that business here to get tax dollars. And we will use those tax dollars wisely."
