MADRAS, OR -- Jefferson County and Madras residents voted against legalized pot during last November's election approving Measure 91, statewide. Now, the city of Madras wants to hear from citizens, whether to allow recreational cannabis sales inside the city. 

 

Madras Mayor Royce Embank tells KBND they're holding a town hall meeting Tuesday evening, “In order to better serve our public here, what we’re asking for is input from our citizens. We wanted to have a town hall meeting and invite all of our voters and even people outside of the city to weigh in on what is their preference? What do they want to see?” He adds, “The city and county all voted against Measure 91. We want to see if that’s still their feeling given the information that they’ve had over time."
 
Tonight's town hall meeting takes place at council chambers from 6 to 9 p.m.
 
Madras allows medical marijuana dispensaries; there is currently one, with two more requesting permits.
