Medical Marijuana in North Kansas City

Zoning Ordinance Requirements

The adopted ordinance established a reduced local buffer requirement for medical marijuana uses. No medical marijuana facility may be located within 300 feet of an existing elementary or secondary school, licensed child day care center, or church. A map showing this buffer distance from existing schools, day care centers, and churches is available here.
