A Fairbanks dispensary is moving closer to becoming the first in the city where on-site consumption of cannabis is permitted.
The Fairbanks City Council voted unanimously on a measure that allows consumption at The Fairbanks Cut, once it gets a certificate of occupancy, according to the Daily News-Miner.
It can take several weeks to a year to get an occupancy permit, according to the Fairbanks newspaper.

At issue, was whether The Fairbanks Cut occupied a “freestanding building,” as required.
An owner of The Fairbanks Cut is appealing the board’s decision.
