  • After selling medical marijuana without a required state license for most of April, Ashland pot dispensary Siskiyou Medical Supply closed last week.
    Owner Mike Welch said Ashland police informed him on April 30 that he needed to shutter the dispensary, which is inside Puff's Smoke Shop off Ashland Street.
    The temporary rules governing medical marijuana dispensaries in Oregon were released by the Oregon Health Authority on April 4, and made it illegal to operate a dispensary in Oregon without a license from the agency.
    Prior to the rules being released, dispensaries were able to operate legally under guidelines laid out in House Bill 3460, which took effect March 3.
    Welch said he was unaware that he was required to obtain a license through the OHA Medical Marijuana Dispensary Program to continue operating his dispensary.
    "That wasn't the case with 3460," Welch said. "In House Bill 3460, which is what we used to open, we were fine."
