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."
