The city of Beavercreek is considering a permanent ban on medical marijuana. The city council is set to debate whether to move forward with a ban Monday afternoon at a work session that began at 5 p.m. No vote is expected during the work session.

The council takes up the proposed ban despite the state's previous approval of a medical marijuana dispensary slated for location within city limits.
