Nelson asked Ward why she voted no to the marijuana ordinance.
Ward said she felt there didn’t need to be an ordinance.
Nelson explained why she voted no and it was because she felt she didn’t like the direction the ordinance was going and she wants the St. Clair County Sheriff Department to oversee enforcing the rules.
