Marijuana rules eyed countywide

Friday, August 10, 2018

The Clatsop County Commission re-opened a public hearing on an ordinance regulating location, manner and hours of operation of marijuana facilities in the unincorporated county, including recreational and medical marijuana production, processing, sales, research and testing.

The new county marijuana code limits retail outlets’ hours to 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., imposes minimum distances from schools, public parks and other uses, and prohibits on-site consumption, among other rules. Measures to limit odors from facilities also are mandated.

The new rules would not apply to existing facilities.

After an initial first reading of the ordinance on June 20, the board requested wording changes to the rules.

A final hearing on the ordinance is set for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 8.
