Delta city clerk Jolene Nelson said she's handed out a number of applications for medical marijuana establishment licenses, but as of noon Tuesday, none had been completed and returned. The initial application deadline was 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 16, but pursuant to city code, that deadline may be extended for some types of medical marijuana establishments if fewer applications are submitted by the deadline than the number of available licenses.

In November, City of Delta voters approved two measures, one allowing the establishment of medical marijuana centers, and the other permitting the establishment of medical marijuana cultivation, testing, research and manufacturing facilities.

License applications were not available until April 10, following action by the Delta City Council to lift a moratorium that had been in effect while they finalized zoning and licensing requirements.
