(Hillsboro, OR) -- A 120-day ban is in effect on medical marijuana facilities in Hillsboro. The Hillsboro City Council approved the ban last night, more than a month before the state of Oregon is to begin licensing medical-marijuana dispensaries. A city spokesman says Hillsboro wants to give members of the community a voice in deciding which direction to take with regard to medical marijuana. Nearly 200 medical-pot facilities are currently operating across Oregon.
