Lubbock Mayor Glen Robertson Considering New Options For Synthetic Marijuana Ban [AUDIO]
On Friday's edition of Lubbock"s First News, Lubbock Mayor Glen Robertson joined Tom Collins and Laura Mac to discuss the latest news coming out of the city council.
Synthetic marijuana continued to be a hot topic at Tuesday's city council meeting. Robertson said there are 2 different options the council is considering, either a complete ban on synthetic marijuana, or a ban on the sell of the substance to those under 18. However, Robertson admitted that he is considering possibly raising the age limit of that ban to 21.
There was as idea that was brought up. What if we moved the legal age limit of this product to 21? I've got a little bit of heartburn with that...but this product is bad enough that I am willing, in this situation, to say I will go along with the potential ban on this product to anybody under the age of 21.
Robertson said he hopes to have some kind of measure against synthetic marijuana on the council agenda at the next meeting on January 10th.
Robertson also talked about the possibility of Lubbock recycling waste water in the future. He said that it probably would not be an issue in this generation, but could be a long-term factor depending on how we manage our water now. Robertson also discussed potential future location for Godeke library, saying that he'd like to involve the community in the planning process as well as city council.
