Marijuana businesses will not be open in the city of Jackson anytime soon.

Jackson City Council members considered two ordinances during a Tuesday night meeting that would have allowed medical and recreational marijuana businesses to operate in the city.

The ordinances both failed with a 3-3 vote and Jackson Mayor Derek Dobies was not at the meeting to serve as the tie-breaking vote.

Since both ordinances failed, they will not move forward for a second vote.

As of Tuesday night, the city says no plans were made to bring up the issues for a vote at a later meeting.
