The Billings City Council has adopted an emergency ordinance that bans the storefront sale of medical marijuana.

The council voted 9-1 Tuesday night after hearing about an hour of testimony from nearly 30 people on both sides of the issue. The ordinance will go into effect Wednesday.

The council had postponed action on the emergency ordinance at two meetings in June, agreeing to wait for a ruling from a Lewis and Clark County judge who was hearing a lawsuit that challenged a restrictive law passed by the Legislature.

On Thursday, District Judge James Reynolds tossed out major portions of the bill, but he left intact a section of the law that authorized local governments to enact their own prohibitions on storefront sales of the drug.
