Cities place moratorium on collective marijuana gardens
Public hearings on the issue are set for Sept. 6
Tuesday, July 19, 2011
The Camas and Washougal City Councils last night approved a six-month moratorium on establishing or operating marijuana collective gardens or dispensaries within city limits.
The move was made in reaction to an Act passed by the Legislature two months ago that allows certain qualifying medical marijuana patients to have the ability to come together to collectively cultivate medical marijuana.
The Act is scheduled to go into effect Friday.
Collective gardens permit qualifying patients to produce, grow and deliver up to 45 cannabis plants to serve no more than 10 qualifying patients for medical use.
