A vote to place a moratorium on marijuana dispensaries in Daly City has been postponed.
City Councilman Sal Torres was unable to attend Monday’s meeting due to an illness, and because a vote of four of the five members was needed, the measure was pushed back until March 22.
Daly City has received about 10 inquiries in the last year from people who are considering setting up dispensaries. The City Council was to consider placing a 45-day moratorium on establishing the organizations.
Mayor Mike Guingona said the time frame would allow city officials to research issues surrounding dispensaries. Similar bans exist in Redwood City, South San Francisco and San Bruno.
