DURANT, Okla. -- The City of Durant passed its new medical marijuana ordinance on Tuesday evening.

After hearing from citizens at a forum last week, city staff made necessary changes. The city reiterated they're not going against anything voters passed, but rather refining the law to make it a better fit for the city.

City Planner Matt Nahrstedt said most of the additional regulations include zoning requirements.

"We just want to put forth uniform regulation based on what the state has given, and the state question and the health department regulations," he said. "Filtering all that down along with the stakeholder opinions and advice."
