The group, consisting of Portland city councilor Dave Marshall, Cumberland County Sheriff Mark Dion, representatives from the Maine Civil Liberties Union, and medical marijuana patients, called for a dispensary to be set up as soon as possible.
Proponents of the moratorium say they're not opposed to a dispensary; they just want to find the right place for one.
A public hearing on the issue will take place on June 21.
