They are called Marijuana Sharing Clubs and two are proposed for Bend. Some local residents don't like it, and the issue is now in front of the Bend City Council.  The operator of one proposed club assured Councilors it's not a "dope house". Chris Smith plans to open a business called Central Oregon Alternative Therapy. “I'm not going to operate this club after daylight. We will be closing at six o'clock every night and opening at noon. I intend to legally provide a safe place for access for people who are allowed to get medicine via the Oregon Medical Marijuana regulations.” However, not all residents are convinced. Mama’s Medical Marijuana is proposed at a location near NE Division Street. “Having Mama's Medical Marijuana in the same small business complex will damage our business through association through proximity.” Kathleen Shabough owns Arc-Point, a drug testing company is located at 2600 NE Division Street near the proposed Mama's Medical Marijuana. Central Oregon Alternative Therapy is proposed at Fourth and Purcell. City Councilors say there is nothing they can't shut down the clubs as long as they follow the law, but will continue to monitor the situation.
