Ashland, Ore.– City councilors voted 4-1 Tuesday night to pass an ordinance that limits the number of recreational and medical marijuana grows within city limits.
The marijuana land use ordinance allows six outdoor medical marijuana plants to be grown per household and four recreational plants can also be grown outdoors per household.
Right now growers in ashland are allowed to grow six plants for up to two patients in their household. But that will change in january when the ordinance will become law because council declared an emergency on the second reading of the ordinance, meaning there will be no grace period.
The ordinance was created because people living near grows were concerned about their smell.
