HUNTINGTON BEACH Surf City is the latest city in Orange County to consider a ban on medical marijuana dispensaries.
The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing Tuesday to discuss the issue. Other cities considering a ban on the dispensaries include Fountain Valley, Fullerton, Mission Viejo, Newport Beach, Seal Beach and Cypress.
The city has no medical marijuana dispensaries. An application for one in 2005 never panned out.
Recently, however, the city has received requests for a dispensary permit from three Marina High School students, officials said.
