BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — Bloomington is the latest Minnesota city to consider a moratorium on medical marijuana production and sales facilities.

The City Council votes Monday on the one-year moratorium. Bloomington planning manager Glen Markegard says the moratorium would give the city time to develop a better understanding of how to regulate such facilities.

Markegard tells Minnesota Public Radio ( ) medical marijuana sales present unique security concerns because credit card companies don't work with dispensaries, so customers have to bring cash.

Several Minnesota cities already have moratoriums in place, including Duluth and Richfield.
