In a policy work study session Clackamas County Commissioners without a public discussion voted on the land use option. We asked our County Commissioners to refer a complete OPT OUT REFERRAL to the voters in Clackamas County on the November 3, 2016 election and by doing this it would put an immediate moratorium on the allowing of any of the six marijuana processes until the November 3, 2016 statewide election when voters will get an opportunity to reevaluate on whether they really want these marijuana facilities in their community now that they understand and are seeing the impacts in their rural communities. If voters pass this referral and choose to OPT OUT, then the 6 major marijuana processes or any one of these depending on the referral will end with the caveat that those medical marijuana dispensaries owners and processors who were in operation prior to July 1, of 2015 will be grandfathered in, but no new marijuana dispensaries or processing sites will be allowed. Marijuana is still a federally illegal drug and poses a lot of risks to our communities. Now we have over 554 commercial marijuana production sites in our once quiet rural residential farming communities and in some areas completely taking over the area.
Please call, write, and fax your County Commissioners and City Councils and let them know that this is not what you voted for.
