    Recently at a council meeting when discussing adding dispensary permits Council-member Ashby stated something to the effect that she doesn’t think we should add more dispensary permits when we have an obvious situation with the cities mismanagement of the cannabis program that is not being handled. The city council should immediately suspend/prohibit any action until the fate of the offending dispensary permits are determined. 25 dispensary permits are now currently INVALID having transferred ownership. The offending permits should be officially terminated; and re-issued before any more permits are added. Because the permits were unlawfully transferred; the permits are technically terminated already; the city must conduct an audit; and any “direct or indirect” transfer of ownership should be publicly acknowledged; and terminated. Once determined; the offending permits should re-issued to the public; giving first priority to qualified military veterans and core equity participants.
