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:

Portland: The Portland City Council adopted regulations for marijuana business last week.  The regulations include a change in hours of operation from 8am to 10pm (previously, it was 7am to 9pm).  Existing dispensaries will also be grandfathered in for distance requirements if they decide to convert to adult use retail outlets.
