Troutdale, Fairview among 112 cities to ban pot dispensaries

Five Oregon cities are pushing to permanently ban the facilities


Troutdale and Fairview unanimously passed, on April 22 and April 16 respectively, a one-year moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries.

Troutdale Mayor Doug Daoust said he has driven around and seen marijuana facilities in Portland, “so it’s not like people don’t have options if they need it. This will just give us a year to figure out what we want to do with these facilities.”

Portland, Bend and Eugene are among cities that have not imposed moratoriums.

According to the most up-to-date count, 112 Oregon cities have filed one-year moratoriums or some kind of ban on medical marijuana dispensaries, said Kevin Toon, communications director at the League of Oregon Cities.

Recent legislation, pushed by the League of Oregon Cities and the Association of Oregon Counties, allowed local governments to impose a one-year ban, if enacted by May 1.

Under the Oregon Senate bill, the moratorium will sunset on May 1, 2015.
