North Bend City Council has banned marijuana dispensaries in the city’s limits for one year. The city’s administration recommended the ban because it felt state law was too vague about how patients can get medical marijuana.
The council unanimously voted at its June 7 meeting to adopt an ordinance banning the opening or operation of any medical marijuana dispensary for one year under the city’s emergency clause. A public hearing on the ban is scheduled for July 19.
