(KTUL) — One city councilor is planning and researching possibilities of changes that could come with medical marijuana. Ben Kimbro says he has been talking with INCOG and the Tulsa Police Department. “It’s gonna be a massive change. I think for our law enforcement partners. I think the prevalence of cannabis consumption in public spaces is a concern, cannabis DUI becomes a greater concern,” said Kimbro, who says he has the experience working with regulatory companies, to handle this job. Paul Tay, who happens to be Kimbro’s competitor for the District 9 Council seat, is calling for the council to come up with a resolution for medical marijuana and a commission to help decide what happens in the city limits. “They are not prepared, not at all. I am the only candidate that is related to city council, that is out front and I was out front with it in 2013 and 2015,” said Tay, who addressed the council at Wednesday night’s meeting. Kimbro says their job is to be sure that cannabis related businesses are zone correctly. “We have got to ensure since the public is going to be going in there, they are open for business they are safe and secure. Security is an issue with cannabis,” said Kimbro. He says nothing has been decided and the city will have to see how the law is carried out, before taking any action.
