The Redmond City Council has to vote *again* on the whether or not to ban medical marijuana.  The Redmond City Council passed a 1 year medical marijuana moratorium on Tuesday.  But it's back to the drawing board today.

 

Mayor George Endicott says they just heard from the state, The Oregon Health Authority,  that any ordinance has to say it "expires" on May 1st to 2015.

 

"Ourselves- Sisters and potentially about 30 other cities passed ordinances- and now we have to do a "do-over" after all of the expense and effort - because of that late arriving direction from the state."

 

The council will re-vote this coming Tuesday...

 

The deadline for cities and counties to have the new ordinances in place in order to qualify for the one year ban is May 1st.

 

The state legislature paved the way for local governments to restrict medical marijuana dispensaries until May 1st, 2015.
