The American Canyon City Council has begun shaping its proposed ordinance on recreational marijuana activities by expressing support for home delivery and allowing indoor cultivation and manufacturing in the city’s commercial district off Green Island Road.

But council members expressed little support for allowing retail sales in American Canyon or backyard cultivation in residential neighborhoods.

No decision was made last week on the ordinance itself, which staff is still crafting.

The council decided to postpone the issue until its March 20 meeting, at which time staff will offer a time frame for when they could have a draft ordinance ready for a vote.

Tuesday night’s discussion lasted nearly two hours, with numerous residents expressing support or opposition to allowing recreational marijuana operations in the city.
