The synthetic marijuana ban has been major point of discussion for the council for the last few meetings. At last night’s meeting, the council finally received a draft of the proposed ban on synthetic marijuana. Robertson explained why it has taken almost 2 months to “get the ball rolling” on the ban process.

“When you’re dealing with a substance like this, you would love to get something on the table quickly to slow the sales down. But, you also need to make sure that what you’re doing is legal, that it’s got some teeth in it. And so it’s taken our attorneys a little while to get there.”

Robertson said that the ordinance will be discussed once more at the January 31st meeting.

Robertson also discussed some possible renovation to the Lubbock Civic Center. He said the most pressing issue would be repairs to the roof, but new carpeting, paint and renovations to the smaller auditorium and sound system would also be included. He also discussed the latest on the “Ports to Plains” project that serves as a “corridor” between the U.S and Mexico.
