MONROE - The city will hold a public hearing June 16 regarding its ordinance on marijuana, synthetic cannabinoids and drug paraphernalia. Monroe's Common Council voted unanimously Tuesday to hold the hearing after Monroe Police Chief Fred Kelley said he received numerous complaints from residents regarding the rise of "fake" drugs. The council plans to repeal and recreate the ordinance to bring into compliance with state statutes.
