Medford council denies medical marijuana club's license

 Posted: 2:55 PM April 03, 2014

A medical marijuana club known as The Lounge lost its appeal to the Medford City Council Thursday in its quest for a business license.

Klamath lawyer Phil Studenberg, who represents The Lounge, said his client will be headed to the courts.

"It's an issue that's going to be resolved somewhere else, but probably not here," Studenberg said.

According to Medford police investigations, The Lounge, at 617 E. Main St., had a $10 cover charge at the door and patrons with valid medical marijuana cards were given a gram of pot to consume on the premises.

The council recently revoked the business license of MaryJane's Attic and MaryJane's Basement in the WinCo shopping center.

Jackson County Circuit Judge Timothy Gerking partially reinstated the business license pending a decision on an appeal but didn't allow MaryJane's to dispense medical marijuana.
