Council member Matt McCune was not at the meeting.
The ordinance, which is set to take effect next week, bars shops, producers and processors from Stanwood. It does not impact the city’s existing medical marijuana dispensary.
One person testified in favor of banning recreational pot shops during a public hearing Thursday. No one testified against the ordinance, and the city has not received any written opinions, City Administrator Deborah Knight said Friday.
No one has applied for a business permit or contacted the city about opening a recreational marijuana business in Stanwood, Community Development Director Ryan Larsen said.
The council plans to revisit the ban next summer.
