Ashland Mulls Medical Marijuana Moratorium

By Jim McCoy Mon 24th March NewsAshlandmedical marijuana
One of Oregon's more liberal cities is considering a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries. The Ashland Daily Tidings newspaper reports (http://is.gd/MqjCai) that the Oregon Health Authority Medical Marijuana Dispensary Program has already received six dispensary applications for Ashland. But neighborhood opposition has been increasing and the council will discuss a moratorium on April 1. People hoping to launch dispensaries in Oregon began submitting applications to the state on March 3 as part of a new medical marijuana regulatory system. A proposed dispensary called Top Shelf Meds abuts an Ashland neighborhood. Carol Kim says the dispensary is separated from her home by a hedge. She says it's ironic that state rules bar dispensaries near schools, but her daughters will come home from school and have to live near a dispensary.
