LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Las Vegas City Council is considering extending a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries that is set to expire later this month.

A proposal introduced Wednesday would put a six-month ban on the businesses. It's up for debate and a possible vote on March 19.

The city's current six-month moratorium expires March 17.

Nevada voters approved medical marijuana in 2000, but that law provided no legal way for patients to obtain the drug except to grow it themselves.

Lawmakers passed a law in 2013 that sets up a framework for distributing medical marijuana, although it allows cities and counties to impose moratoriums.
