Oregon Communities Seek Options To Ban Medical Pot

By Jim McCoy Tue 11th February Newsmedical marijuanaOregon legislature
Oregon lawmakers are considering whether to allow cities and counties to keep out, or at least delay, medical marijuana dispensaries. The Legislature last year approved medical pot stores, but a number of communities don't them and want the right to keep them from opening. A state Senate committee heard testimony Tuesday on a bill to allow communities to regulate, restrict or prohibit medical marijuana facilities authorized under state law. Advocates for cities and counties say the bill clarifies authority they believe they already have and gives communities a chance to take their time developing local controls. But opponents say it could prevent access to medical pot.
