Every week, we are trying to keep our membership up-to-date on what is happening around the state with local bans and regulation.  Here is this week’s local roundup:

Boardman:  The Boardman City Council will be holding a public hearing on a possible ban of marijuana shops on Tuesday, October 13 at 7pm at City Hall located at 200 City Center Drive, according to the East Oregonian.

Wasco County: Wasco County discussed recreational marijuana for nearly an hour at last week’s Commissioner meeting, but have not yet made any decision on whether they will opt out of marijuana sales.  According to the Dalles Chronicle, Commissioner Rod Runyon believes a decision is likely to occur at the last meeting of the year, scheduled for December 16.  In the meantime, they are still collecting information, he said.   

Grants Pass: Rycke Brown has filed a lawsuit against the city of Grants Pass alleging that the city’s marijuana nuisance code 5.72, which makes it illegal to grow marijuana outdoors, violates state law, according to KAJO 1270 am.  The lawsuit was filed on October 1 in Josephine County Circuit Court.
