Discussion Session on Medical Marijuana Time Place and Manner Ordinance Update and Meeting

The Clackamas County Board of County Commissioners have a plan to get rid of both medical and recreational dispensaries by creating an ordinance amending the Clackamas County code to add Chapter 8.09 establishing time, place and manner regulations for marijuana dispensaries. It goes far beyond this however. The Ordinance will prevent ANY dispensaries inside industrial zones and all areas outside the Metro UBC (urban growth boundary), which is most of the county. In addition setbacks from “Sensitive Use” areas include as much as a 2500 foot restrictions in 3 differing classes.  Sensitive Use areas include transit stops, liquor stores, adult foster care, public housing, libraries, playgrounds, parks, and much, much more.

The intent is to restrict or otherwise completely prohibit dispensaries as is clearly stated by the commissioners. Listen to them talk about how to not allow any on the recorded Workshop below. See the carefully articulated spots on a map that only provide swamp land. Speak Your Voice Before It’s Too Late!

An audio of the study session is available. We urge you to give it a listen to see how ridiculous and bigoted our Commissioners are to all they serve. Hear their true opinions and level of education.
