A few customers showed up today at one of Bend's marijuana sharing clubs, but afternoon customers were greeted by a locked door at Central Oregon Alternative Therapy  (COAT) on Division Street. Paul McCord of Bend has smoked marijuana for 20-years: “I have arthritis bad, bad arthritis and I am here to get some medical marijuana.” When asked if it helps: “Absolutely, absolutely, I am in terrible pain all the time and it really, really does help.” Neighboring businesses have mixed reaction. Victoria Collier works for flex force. “Definitely gonna be a negative thing for our company and for Arc-Point as well. We are both drug free, so having people coming and getting marijuana next door will not be a positive thing for us.” But Gary Sobala of Rival Sports Club Bar and Grill is willing to give "COAT" time to see if they will be a good neighbor he says he has talked to 50 people and only one percent have a problem with it.
