MARCO ISLAND, Fla. – Voters passed a referendum on Tuesday night banning recreational marijuana on Marco Island.

The vote passed with almost 69% against recreational marijuana. The referendum prohibits the cultivation, manufacturing, distribution and sale of recreational marijuana within the city limits.

Marco Island still does not have a medical marijuana dispensary on the island. If residents need medical marijuana, they have to get it delivered or drive to Bonita Springs.

Make It Legal Florida wants recreational marijuana on the 2022 ballot. As of right now, the Florida supreme court hasn’t signed off on it.
