Will Oregon Allow Local Opt-Out of MMJ?

Oregon has reached consensus on much in their roll-out of legal cannabis.  But here is a sticking point — local community opt-out of the state mmj plan.  Can localities just say “no?”


The Oregon Legislature’s special pot committee is in danger of going up in smoke after it reached an impasse Monday night over the issue of allowing local communities to ban medical marijuana facilities.
. . .
A total of 146 cities and 26 of the state’s 36 counties took advantage of a 2014 law that allowed them to block medical marijuana facilities until May 1 of this year. Now, the legality of local bans on dispensaries and processors is murky, and legislators can’t agree on how to clarify the law.

Essentially, a majority of the House members of the committee said that they wanted any decision by local officials to ban medical marijuana sales be automatically sent to the ballot.
