City of HR To Talk Dispensaries In Worksession

The Hood River City Council will discuss whether to adopt a one-year moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries at a worksession during their April 14 meeting.  Councilors discussed the subject after hearing from Hood River County Commission on Children and Families executive director Joella Dethman asking the City to adopt a moratorium to put rules in place.  But there was some skepticism on the Council on whether a moratorium would make a difference given rules already adopted by the Oregon Legislature, and Mayor Arthur Babitz notes the state has given municipalities very little room to make changes.  The Oregon Legislature has given cities and counties until May 1 to adopt a temporary moratorium on the dispensaries.
