MARTINEZ — In a raucous meeting that saw everything from Cheech and Chong jokes to concerns about kids having easy access to pot, the city’s Planning Commission took the first step toward establishing a medical cannabis dispensary here.

The planning commission voted unanimously in favor of two measures that grant a conditional use permit at for Firefly Health Corporation, a marijuana dispensary, to operate at 4808 Sunrise Drive. The move still requires council approval.

The most vocal opponent of the commission’s decision was Maurice Jones-Drew, a former NFL running back who co-owns Power Endurance. Jones-Drew said he set up the gym to give back to the East Bay, and that he signed a five-year lease after he was assured the dispensary would not happen.
