The Greenville City Council is poised to make a significant decision regarding the retail sale of recreational cannabis. Following a unanimous vote by the Greenville Planning Commission on June 27th, the Council will consider adopting an ordinance that would legalize and regulate cannabis retail establishments within the city.

The proposed ordinance aims to amend Sections 46-1 and 46-167 of Chapter 46 in the Greenville Code of Ordinances. These changes are designed to set clear guidelines for the operation of recreational cannabis retailers, ensuring that these businesses comply with local zoning regulations.

Should the ordinance receive approval during the City Council meeting on July 13th, recreational cannabis sales could commence as early as August. This move would position Greenville to join a growing number of municipalities across the state that have embraced the regulated sale of cannabis, reflecting shifting public attitudes and the potential economic benefits of this emerging market.

The planning commission's decision to recommend the ordinance highlights the city’s proactive approach to integrating cannabis businesses into the local economy, while also addressing community standards and regulatory needs.

Residents and stakeholders are encouraged to participate in the upcoming public hearings, where they will have the opportunity to express their views on the proposed ordinance before the council reaches a final decision.
