Akron City Council voted unanimously to approve legislation to lift the moratorium on medical marijuana and to allow the cultivation, processing and sale of medical marijuana in Akron. The ordinance includes zoning that keeps growing and processing operations at least 500 feet from schools, churches and playgrounds and restricts retailers from any residential neighborhoods.
