SALEM — Whether Oregon communities can legally ban medical marijuana dispensaries is still undecided in the Legislature, even as people begin applying for permits to open the pot stores.
For a second time, Democrats in the Oregon House today delayed voting on a bill that would allow communities and counties to prohibit medical pot stores in their areas.
House Democrats say they need more one more day to discuss the issue before possibly sending it back to the Senate where its fate is uncertain.
The House measure would give local governments power to prohibit pot stores outright. A Senate version didn't go so far, allowing them regulatory powers over things like locations and hours.
