(Salem, OR) -- A bill that would allow local governments to regulate, but not ban, medical marijuana is moving through the Oregon Legislature. The Senate approved the measure as local communities throughout the state are moving to prohibit medical-marijuana outlets. The bill brings into question the legal status of medical-pot dispensary bans that have been passed in a few Oregon municipalities. The measure will go to the House for consideration.
