EL CENTRO — The city of El Centro held a public forum Tuesday to receive input from the community on its draft ordinance for allowing cannabis dispensaries to operate within the city.

The draft of the ordinance was made in November 2019 and proposes to establish regulations and procedures for adult-use cannabis activities in the city.
